Topic speaks for itself. So I'll start with a little bit of mine.

Most regular ones:

Lick instead of Click.

Blow instead of Below.

Starving instead of Starting.

Good thing I've never really sent any of official letters/messages with these typos. Or did I...

Not my typo, but in a recent document the phrase 'public area' was missing the letter 'l' throughout! Smiley Embarassed

I lost count of all the mistyped versions of Garnor's name Lena, Vladimir and I have used in our communications.

I've been writing a lot of risk assessment stuff lately. I keep writing a$$es instead of assess. I'm really lucky for the little blue line in Word that basically says "Ummmm, are you sure this is right?"

I was trying to tell the client that I was good at something in my cover letter. As soon as I sent it, I was horrified to see that I was 'goof' at it lol. I got hired anyway so maybe they didn't notice either!
