Proper Spelling of "Ridiculous"
Okay...  I rarely ....  well..  I never have posted something like this before in my blog, but this is getting RIDICULOUS.  This is not getting REDICULOUS.  It is getting R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S

It seems like when ever I see that word spelled anywhere on the Internet, it's spelled consistently wrong, and I can't for the life of me figure out why, and it's beginning to grate on my nerves.

So... Just to set the record straight, the word ridiculous is spelled as such:
 
R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S
 
...and there ya have it!  Just in case you were wondering how to spell ridiculous, it's spelled "ridiculous".
Are we good now?

Yes, but can you spell privilege?  I cannot.  I had to look it up to spell it correctly here.  I never learned to spell it because, as a nurse, I can just abbreviate it.  Bath room privileges=BRP. 

The doctors just abbreviate it too.  Nobody writes it out.  Too hard to spell.  Ridiculous!!

Hannah has started to use this word if she doesn't want to do something.  She says, "This is ridiculous!"  She's 3.

P.S.  I actually left this comment yesterday but don't think I saved it!!

Thank you for this post. I have always spelled it ridiculous (correctly) but I see it spelled wrong all the time and began to question myself. That is why I googled how to spell it, and it led me here. So I am glad to know that not only was I right but that it bothers other people as well. I think most people have a common word that for some reason they are just unable to spell correctly. My personal word is probably, which I often spell probley, even though if I think about it I know is wrong. It just comes out that way if I don't pay attention to it. Although I think there is a overall decline in spelling in our society due to spell check, and this new "typing langauge' used for texting and social media. Sorry if I have taken a simple post and turned it into a personal rant about how as technology advances our ability to do simple tasks without the assistance of technology is rapidly declining. I fear what will happen over the next few generations. Pens and paper will be as much of a relic as the rotary phone if we are not careful. Thank you for your time and allowing me to vent. I hope you all have a great day.

Sadly I was spelling it so wrong even spell check couldn't help me so I googled it. Thank godness I found this blog thing because everyone else couldn't agree and even google couldn't correct me first time.
