This really killed me, because while this is a pet peeve, I can look past an honest mistake. But how does one overlook this when printing off a bunch of t-shirts. There was no creative purpose for this typo either, the designer was obviously oblivious.
I can't handle seeing stuff like this. Mum and I saw a poster for that stupid Australian Princess show, and the blurb bit at the top said something about Fairy Tales. I am still cranky about that

I'm horrid with grammar, but blatant mistakes shit me to tears. Spelling errors are almost as bad.

"Fairy Tale" is the correct way to spell this. So what made you cranky?

It's a compound word. We write it as fairytale.

Here it can be written as fairy tale or hyphenated (fairy-tale) but not fairytale.

Sources: dictionary.com, Encarta World Dictionary, Oxford English Dictionary, Merriam-Webster, and American Heritage.
