When I was on car forums, the plebs there would equally spell "break" when they meant the other! This isn't a case of a simple error, it's a case of the new generation not even being aware there are two spellings according to context.
The in/on/at confusion reminds me: Buses around here when not running properly say "Not in service" on the destination board(s). There are some old photographs from this area showing buses "Not on service". "On service" doesn't sound right to me. "On the weekend" sounds like an American influence.
Yep. "Anytime" does not mean the same as "any time". The daft thing is that I am seeing examples of this class of error frequently - not just the omission of a space, but also the insertion of a space.
It's the age-old problem: people are no longer reading, so they are not used to how words are supposed to look and they no longer know how to write (or rely on dumb spell checkers... but "speical"?).
Well, I got locked into a box with a radioactive isotope and cyanide. Luckily I had electronic skills to disable the mechanism and rig it to poison whoever it was that locked me in, as soon as they re-open the box.
Apparently, a century ago, they tried it on a cat. When they opened the box, the cat was dead, of starvation. Sooo, this time they have provided me with thousands of ACORNS!
