This is such an awesome thing!

Who knew bad spelling could cost you your job?

We've seen our fair share of flubs and misspelled signs on the internet, and usually they seem like a harmless screw-up turned meme!

However, this time it may have cost someone their job!!

You know how we reported on that 17-year-old who made $72 Million from trading stocks early Monday?

Well, it turns out that might all be a lie!
