I'm an Idiot

For some reason, I have the latest headlines from the BBC bookmarked on my work computer. I don't know how it got there, but it's kinda fun to check from time to time - mostly because they spell words funny. Colour. Organisation. Tonne. Behaviour. Etc.

The other day I was skimming through the links and found one about a postal strike. Oh no! I love the post office. I love to get and send real mail. This is a travesty!

I'm reading, getting more and more worried by the word, when I realise* that they keep calling the post office the 'Royal Mail'. Oops. I totally forgot I was reading an article from the BBC. Our postal service is not going to go on strike (whew!).

* British spelling.
