Oh, that is hilarious, Saranita. We just revised our Web site at work and disseminated widely a postcard to let people know; it said to take a "Sneak Peak." In a letter that went out to a high official in the Philippines someone mistakenly said something like, "...weather you wish to take advantage of this opportunity or not..." These can be so funny and of course spellcheck won't pick up many mistakes.
It amazes me how you can write, rewrite, edit, review, etc., and still miss a blatant error. Just this week I constructed a survey to be sent out to our members. I went over it so many times, as did my assistant, and then we realized the introductory explanation said, "We are requesting informaton on your minimum faculty." We had meant "minimum faculty qualifications. Sheesh! Fortunately we caught it, and we also had someone else review it before we sent it out.
It's doubly amazing with emails and message boards, that you can compose your words with care. Read them three times checking for grammatical errors and spelling errors, consider for half an hour whether the sense of them is exactly what you intended and then - IN THE SPLIT SECOND AFTER YOU HIT SEND BUT BEFORE THE SCREEN REFRESHES - notice the glaring error.
