Spelling Nightmares

Hey, how come “refrigerator” has no letter “D” in it, but we abbreviate it to “fridge”. What the hell is going on?

Also, in last night’s episode of Lost, the doctor’s subtitles said “you’re husband”, confusing “your” and “you’re” like a 12 year old on the internet. He’s a doctor, you’d think he could spell his subtitles correctly. There better be an explanation involving nanotechnology and the Dharma corporation, or I’m boycotting the show.

    I noticed the same spelling mistake in that scene with Sun and the doctor. I cringed and waited for a shirtless Matthew Fox to make it all better. (It didn’t happen.)

    I am aware there is no ‘d’ in <>refrigerator<> but use it in <>fridge<> regardless. What irritates me it <>disrespect<> as a verb.

    Butchiboy: I disprespect the fact that you use a D in “fridge”.Actually, it’s in the dictionary, so I guess that’s actually the correct spelling. No wonder English is such a hard language to learn.Toobuysliving: I will visit your blog right now, and then we can be best friends too!!!!!Everyone else: I think this is the most comments I’ve ever gotten (not including when I comment on my own posts to make myself feel better). I love you all.
