What websites have the best Cyber Monday deals?
With all of the messages that we send on a day-to-day basis, it's awfully easy to make a mistake that's rather embarrassing. We've all hit "send" on that email a little early to find ourselves wishing we could pull it back. What are your worst typos or the worst ones you've seen? Adding the story behind it in the description is appreciated!

accidents, email, typos, misspelling
Not long ago I was in touch with someone about working with our creative firm. It turned out that our contact had left the company and the new person wasn't interested in our services. I sent a brief note thanking her for her time and ended with the comment, "Sorry for the inconvenence!" The spell-check caught my typo and corrected it (incorrectly). My email ended up reading, "Sorry for the incontinence!" (I felt like a bit of an idiot.)
instead of 'Anybody'
"Shishi" is Hawaii local slang for urine. Who knew? http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=shi+shi
This one wasn't my typo, but I do think it's a painfully funny one. For some time I worked at a newspaper. One of the ad builders created an ad with the headline "Final registration" all in capitals. Unfortunately, he adjusted the letter-spacing to tightly, resulting in "Final" reading more like "Anal". I saw this for the first time over a decade ago and it still makes me laugh!
