36. I got into an argument with a web site client over this exact error

She wrote that her AC units were not covered by lightening strikes.

I corrected the word, and ran it online.

She changed it, and wrote me a smug letter, offering the advice that I should reduce my spelling errors if I wanted to make a buck in web design.

I corrected the spelling again, and wrote back that while I appreciated her comments, the correct spelling was, in fact, lightning.

She insisted "lightening" was a real word. It is a word, I wrote, it's just not the word, and I photocopied a page from a dictionary, with both words highlighted.

I did not hear back from her until I received my check, with a brief "thanks for your services" pink slip. No more work from that client. Moron...
