Dear Americans,

It is spelled D-O-L-L-A-R. Since it has been the form of currency your entire life you could at least learn how to spell it properly. Say it with me now, D-O-L-L-A-R.

Thank you.

I most recently saw it as "doller" in a community. It made my pregnancy rage boil.

Once when I was trying to teach my old pre k kids about money, I got some learning money from the school district that was labeled "bucks" as in 1 buck or 5 or 10 bucks. I was so pissed because that was all they had. I ended up "printing" my own money and trying to get it as close to the real money as possible. Then I showed the kids what the real bills looked like. Thank goodness for presidential clip art.

We have this ultra-ghetto Dollar Dreams downtown, and the R fell off, so now it's "Dolla Dreams," which is how most people here pronounce it anyways, LOL
