“Definitely” doesn’t have any A’s!!!

Misspelling the word “definitely” is definitely my new pet peeve of the month. True, most of my pet peeves involve grammar or punctuation, so this is nothing special, but where did all these people get the idea all of a sudden that “definitely” has an A in it? I’m sure I had seen that spelling once or twice before in my life, but nothing to annoy me like it does now. It’s all over the place&#8212emails, discussion forums, blags. Get with it, people! I don’t even want to type out the incorrect spelling because enough injustice has been done to the word already and I don’t want to supply any additional instances of that spelling for anyone’s brain, contributing to their subconscious impression that it’s spelled like that!
