The dangers of dyslexia

by Suw on December 16, 2004

Oooh that was close. The trouble with having a boyfriend whose IM nick is actually a misspelling is that it's easy to add the correctly spelt nick to one's buddy list in addition to the correctly incorrectly spelt nick without realising either that one has a duplication or that the correctly spelt nick is actually a valid nick for someone else on IM. It is then ooh so easy not to see that the person who's just come online is not actually one's partner, but someone else entirely, because both nicks look the same. It is then almost inevitable that one will say something deeply inappropriate to a complete stranger without realising it. The only thing that kept me from totally embarrassing myself was the fact that I was so surprised to see him online that I opened with a not too slushy 'Honey! I thought you were on a train at the moment?'.
You know, I have real trouble with spelling names.
