Y oh Y! Do people still insist on spelling the name Squire, after all these years?
Just like how people still spell Jason Witten's name as Whitten ... after 14 years in the league.
In some people’s defense, even if you type it correctly, spell check will change it to Squire until it learns that you wanted it the other way. My phone always used to change it. It doesn’t anymore.
What does it matter?, we allow/accept people using text abbreviations when writing, so why can't we accept that subconsciously people will spell Squire( possibly because this is the correct spelling of squire) instead of Squier, Suck it up cos we are grown ups not kids in the playground. Maybe if we start pronouncing it " SQUEER", then again, maybe not...
I like "Squire". Typed in a CL search I find listings that others might miss.
OP is from the UK, NFL names might not be relevant. Mkhitaryan and Wilshere might be.
Then again, people in the UK pronounce it Lester (Leicester) and Wooster-sher (Worcestershire).
Guilty of both Eddie! Lol.
I'm pretty sure anyone that is new and spelling it wrong will figure it out very quickly. Why not just give them a break since you know what they are talking about? I see no need to have the spelling police on hand.
I really got it wrong on this one.
Too funny. The autocorrect on our phones changes Squier and Squire to Squirt. h aha
Not even sure which one is proper! Lol..My peeps made the proper software changes... Then I fired em!
I do not care how people spell it but if I desire to spell words correctly I can. Spell check isn't all powerful. A quick proof read before posting is all it takes to find and correct my errors. When I do not proof read before posting, I usually have mistakes.
But what about the SQUIER family who started the company in the 19th century? Is it ok if we all call you 50freight
By the way, spell check can be a right nightmare, I had a crappy meal in a local restaurant so I texted the manager and told him I wanted to sack his cook
Simple … people don't care enough anymore. That's why even after seeing my name in print (Barrie) more often than not, they'll spell it Barry.
I had a hell of a time getting the spelling changed on my mortgage (when I had one) to the correct one, even thought it was the mortgage company that made the mistake.
I’m in the same boat. I’ve worked long enough with people of various educational backgrounds to have to decipher what was supposed to be typed in an email, memo, etc. However, about 75% of my posts on here are made from my iPhone, and Siri has her own idea of how things should be spelled... I usually find a few mistakes if I take a minute to look at my post before submitting (so far she’s made about 5 that I’ve had to fix)....
Note: I don’t always take the time to proof my posts...
I have dyslexia so I almost never notice the typo.
Oh man. I just searched "Squire" in the local CL and one of my own ads came up. I spelled it correctly in the title but in one part of the text I spelled it "Squire". And I'm usually pretty careful to proofread.
Squier II Contemporary HSS - Korea - $125 (Longmont)
This 1991 Korean made Squire is in very good condition. Squiers from this era are known to have very nice necks and this one is no exception and shows no fret wear. Everything works as it should. New strings and a fresh set-up.
My cousin has dyslexia, every Christmas he takes his kids to see Satan
