Webster, Spelling, and You

Wow, so I get an e-mail from Webster Bank (local bank up here in Connecticut). They’re a larger outfit as local banks go. And the e-mail contains the following header: “We’ve got the hotest new look of teh summer.”

First I thought to myself, “self, this is a fishing e-mail with the ph the kids are so fond of”. But no, it’s legit. The e-mail and URL addresses check out.

The only way that they can redeem this is if someone typed it out on a blackberry.. but I’m assuming even that’s got a sane spellcheck these days.

So yea, customer e-mail to the entire client list without so much as a read for spelling. I hope anyway. Either that or hottest is now less a t and “teh” has entered the lexicon.
