comment How to get my sister to use correct spelling while typing on computer?
haha, you don't say! I've already begun not responding to her, or asking her to clarify by saying, "what? I don't get it!" and she usually types it out correctly the second time around (it's getting better already) - but there are times when she just gives up as well so hopefully this will get somewhere!

This only aggravated every one around us and people started to "stare us down to death" - we let out a sheepish grin and got away from there as soon as possible. It did not have any effect on the original intended person whatsoever. So I am not very convinced that this is the best approach - if it didn't work on strangers, it probably wouldn't work on my sister! (2)

The second part of your answer.. here's an interesting story - I was in India for a few days, catching up with an old college friend. For a guy who's usually around proper road etiquette, the traffic in India terrified me, but more so was the constant, random vehicle horns that the people seem to be fixated upon. When I mentioned this to a friend - he thought a similar approach would ward off the person who was behind us, who's hand seemed to have fallen asleep on the horn button. So my friend let him pass, got behind him, and started sounding the horn at him. (1)

Hi Aadit, I do agree with most of your answer, but I think you've mistaken. @Beofett didn't really suggest that I ignore the message, but he actually suggested what you are trying to imply - to just pretend not to understand it so then my sister would see that I don't understand and stop using it with me.. At least, that's the message that I took away from his answer.

Thank you very much; this is similar to the top answer right now but I do get the idea!
