Because 'business' is repeatedly spelt busniess in their flyers and posters which they would like me to pass on. I'm all for supporting local entrepreneurs but AIBU to put the stuff straight into the recycling and ask them not to bring any more unless the spelling mistakes are corrected?

YANBU in the slightest.

Yanbu. Why don't you call them and tell them?

I would assume they would not purposefully have made the spelling mistake, so for one of many reasons it was an error.
Let them know.

Yes, I would let them know - if they get gobby about it then definitely don't pass out flyers! I think most people would be grateful for the proofreading though. It makes them look a bit more professional.

I had one for a private nursery / preschool that I found 5 spelling mistakes in. I know they arent teaching spelling at preschool but in my mind that was careless, so ruled it out immediately.

A local estate agent gave me details of a house similar to ours to show how they would market our house.
I pointed out the 4 spelling errors, including the name of the house.
We won't be using them.

So pleasd that I don't seem to be blowing this out of all proportion. Think I'll give them a friendly call on Monday and point out the error. Cheers, peeps smile

pleased, stupid phone!

It's ok to make errors but if you're having flyers printed up you should proof read them, get someone else to proof read them and proof read them yourself again!

It's not as if that wouldn't be picked up on a spell check function too

Reminds me of a couple of months ago when I got a catalogue in the post from h&m, where on the FRONT COVER they had '10% off your first online purschase'
I couldn't believe it!
