I am just asking a very basic question. Since it's obvious that all electricians work with them, why is there so much trouble spelling them correctly? I mean, we go through thousands of boxes of them, with their name printed clearly on every case, box or receipt, yet so many people still spell them "Recepticles".

Just a peeve that I have. I am not looking to offend anyone, but my former boss couldn't spell anything and it drove me crazy. Reading his notes were like going back to the second grade.

I would be remiss if I did not note the fact that the original poster did indeed err in spelling the word "their" in the original post.
You can't start a spelling rant and have a typo, it's bad form.

It's all good... We have linemen at our jobsite that climb "pols" and "pul weirs"
Their paperwork is usually an interesting read for those who can decipher it...

We have one person on my fire department that can't spell battery. When we file a false activation report we sent a copy to the homeowner and to fire prevention with a line in it "..due to dead battier" Yea, we look like a bunch of professionals...

Over here the traditional name is "socket outlet" rather than receptacle, but even so I've seen some errant spellings.
anyone? I would, but it might "sock it" back to me!
