I was checking out some headlines on AOL and saw a link for signs your spouse may be cheating. The problem with the link? Here's the wording:

"Here are some signs you should be weary of"

The word should be spelled wary.

I can understand how it can happen. Wear is a word that sounds like you could just add a "y" to get the right word.

Problem is, when you add the "y" you get a totally different word with a different pronunciation.

And there isn't a spell-check in the world that would catch it.
