Is this or is this not the correct spelling??

So another mom here on Cafemom sent me a nasty message saying I needed to learn how to spell. The spelling in question here is that of the Illinois Governor's name. This is how I spelled it in my comment BLAGOJEVICH and she swears up and down that I spelled it wrong! I know its a weird name but come on am I wrong? That is the correct spelling!

  • I think if she was gonna send you a PM over spelling that she should at least know what she is talking about. You are correct in your spelling. She is wrong, wrong, wrong. Sounds like a stupid reason to send a nasty message if you ask me. Geez!

  • I googled it, and that it is the spelling I see. What did she say was the correct spelling?

  • You spelled it correctly. She's probably just confused because phonetically it looks wrong for the pronunciation.

  • there is definitely a 'j' in there! it is such a difficult name to spell though... you should send her a link to an article with his name in it, shouldn't be hard to find! lol

  • You spelled it right. You mean she actually went out of her way to send you a private message to complain about your spelling? Some people on here are the biggest snoots ever.

  • Wow, spell check alert. Please cafe mom put spell check so teacher's comments are not filling up the pages here.
