Ineffective ultimatum

Overheard in an airport concourse last week:

Mother to squalling child: "Do you want me to send you to your room?"

Dyslexia or just moment of doubt?

I always have to stop and think before I say or write these things:
  • dot your i's and cross your t's
  • move a date up or back (I just never say this because I'm not confident I use it the same way as everyone else)
  • judgement or judgment
  • Meán Fómhair or Deireadh Fómhair
  • Daylight savings time or standard time
  • cynical or sarcastic
Does anyone else have ones like this?
