typostanding



portmanteau of “typo” and “misunderstanding”

used to describe a typo that spiraled into a misunderstanding between two or more people.
guy: yeah, so what i want written down is, “there are calibration points”

girl: oh…. okay. could you please describe what the calibration points are? maybe we can use something along the lines of, “there are adjustment points for fine tuning?”

guy: we do not calibrate printers. we do not calibrate rulers. we do not calibrate computers. we do not calibrate presses.

girl: yeah… i understand that, i’m pretty sure we have stickers on the presses that say “calibration not required”. but you know what, you’ve been doing this longer than i have, so i’ll just use that as-is: “there are calibration points”

guy: i’m so sorry! it all makes sense now, what i meant was: “there are no calibration points” it was all just a typostanding.
