Perish nurse

I went back and forth about whether I should post this. I try to be respectful, and sometimes pointing out the mistakes of others is certainly not respectful. This one is almost so egregious that I would expect to see it in one of those email forwards or something.

In my bulletin at church this morning:

“There is a fact sheet about the H1N1 Flu on the information desk, put out by our perish nurse, if you are interested please take one.”

Wow. Yeah, I got a good laugh out of that one, Talking about an infectious disease, and suddenly the church has a perish nurse. I know that parish and perish sound the same, but they mean very different things. Spell check won’t catch this mistake, but it must be caught.
