I may have already posted this, but it still makes me laugh.
I was picking up my bf in college and he lived on campus so I always had to park in weird places. That particular day I found a spot with a parking sign saying "Genius II." "This was meant for me," I smugly said to myself, "How thoughtful this world is." My boyfriend got in the car and I couldn't resist pointing the sign out to him saying: "It's like they knew I was coming here for I am a genius." He looked at the sign, and attempted to hide a grin and said, "The sign reads "Genesis II" because this is a women's shelter."
Not really a misreading per se. There is a file on my computer called "Legal Analysis of Contract.pdf". The whole file name doesn't show up in Finder and gets abbreviated with an ellipsis in the middle. It just so happens that it shows in Finder as "Legal Anal...Contract.pdf".
