* Inverted in the fanfic ''This Means War'', Hermione (and Ron when he finds out) takes it upon herself to write Harry's homework, because he is busy with the fight against Voldemort. However, as Snape puts it, while she manages to imitate Harry's handwriting and style perfectly, she does not dumb her writing down enough - apparently, Harry has never used the word 'whom' in his essays, and would not use 'discombobulate' when 'confuse' was also available.

* As shown in the page image, use of American English spelling conventions - in Britain - can be a BerserkButton to many Brits. Going to buy a donut at a McDonalds drive-thru can provoke a very colorful, sorry, ''colourful'', response, by those to whom American spellings are like fingernails down a blackboard, or who perceive a threat to established British social and cultural values. Quite sulfurous, perhaps, if you're a chemist who doesn't see why we should adopt the wrong spelling of the word "sulphur" and its derivatives, save for American convenience. And then there's that final letter of the alphabet...

[[note]]Hey, if ''we'' have to take the junior ''and incorrect'' name "aluminium", ''you'' can put up with "sulfur". Note for non-chemists: the definitive IUPAC spellings for the elements in question are "aluminium" and "sulfur". And "caesium", though that one's at least justified by the Latin root.[[/note]] And then there's that final letter of the alphabet...

:: Good thing Randall's not [[http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/cretin British]] or [[http://www.thefreedictionary.com/cretin French,]] or [[BilingualBonus Mike would look like an idiot]]. To the British, the above is hilariously funny, and could make them think the "creetin" thing was done on purpose to make Mike look like an idiot.

* ''Series/AquiNoHayQuienViva'': Juan Cuesta, as a teacher, is shown to be obsessed with ortography. He once reduced the grade of a student in a exam because the kid spelled his own name wrong, and got arrested because a policeman caught him ''correcting the typos of a graffiti''.
