Several months ago I bought an auto lock that attaches to the brake pedal of my ’66 Dodge Charger. The idea is that if someone were to attempt to steal the car they couldn’t push the brake in order to stop the vehicle. To assist in the theft prevention department they give you a cool steering wheel cover to inform would-be thieves that they might as well just move on.
I had been using this for about a month before I noticed some of it was written in Spanish.
OK, so it’s not Spanish, just a typo. “Attacheo” looks like a Spanish word at a glance! It made me chuckle (while also inspiring this post.) But even funnier is the other obviously misspelled word that I didn’t notice until I started writing this post… the auto lock is “unbrak eable”.
It’s always a good idea to have a few layers of spell check and proof reading before going to print.
