Been there; done that.

Here in Bim cardinal coordinates are almost completely unknown. Instead directions are "OK, you go up to town" (even though you're going south, and down a hill). "Then you turn left at the place where there used to be a cow."

I'm not joking.

To share, I almost dropped out of high school because I simply couldn't spell correctly (I still can't; I'm dyslexic).

But, I had a wonderful English teacher in high school, a Mr. Smith, who told me to "Ignore the spelling; just write.

Mr. Smith changed my life.
