one letter difference (True story, so maybe not so funny???)

I am frequently confronted with mis-spellings of my last name, Krijthe. I see it as Krythe, Krijte, Kryte, it makes you wonder how they misread the name in my e-mail address.

Anyways, one time I again got a letter sent to W.W. Krijte and complained about it to a friend. She responded by saying: "Don't make such a fuss, it's only one letter!"

I said "Well, one letter can make a world of a difference. Take for instance the word hunt, you change only one letter...", she interrupted me saying "ok, ok, never mind"

I finished "...and you have runt, and that's a totally different thing"

...for some reason she expected a different word... I wonder why :p ;)

Actually, Krythe is an existing name, and I kind a wonder if it's a distant side of the family... or maybe not so distant???

depends how far away they are. the other side of the world would be pretty distant if you ask me :p
not at all - one branch of my family has lived in Indonesia for generations :p America is closer than that ;) Thing is, with migration to North America going on for centuries, the link might be way back...


Not all there...
"One letter difference" true story:
I was graphic designer for a billboard company and had to do a sign for a racquetball club. They offered "Public Play" and somehow we left the "L" out of "Public". Luckily we caught the typo before it actually got posted in "Public"...

Good one, and lucky you did see the error before publication... I know a university where they actually had an error like that on the frontpage of a book they used... it said manger instead of manager... can't imagine how they failed to see that...:laugh::laugh:
