NEW YEAR COUNTDOWN (Day -8, Viaggio in Islanda. Choose your words wisely.)

  |   CultureShocks Blog

How a typo can flush your message down the toilet.

Instead of writing ‘waterfall’ [cascata], the tour company Viaggio in Islanda [Travel to Iceland] spelled it ‘cacata’ – which means, well, ‘to shit’. As a result, the message read:

‘Have you experienced the emotion of watching the sunset from behind a shit?”

Um, yeah… awwwwkward. Although Social Media is all about speed, better check your posts and tweets one more time before sending them out into the world.
