This is not just me, I know, but it is happening more and more. I will be getting my eyes checked Monday.

Traveling recently and saw "Nasty Chinese Buffet" which turned out to be "Dynasty Chinese Buffet" - the "Dy" was behind a power pole that I hadn't noticed.

License plate holder that said "Simshonda" which took a second and third look before I figured out it was "Sims Honda"

Many years ago reading someone's handwriting at work I was freaked out by reading that little Susie would not be in to school because of "the rapist." Of course, it was "therapist."

When we were travelling to our daughters home in Suffolk we passed a sign which we thought said 'Oriental Bug Sale' we laughed so much about who would want to buy bugs of any kind
On the return journey, we saw the sign read 'Oriental RUG Sale! Ooops

Yep... not only do I not read things correctly at times, I am losing my hearing too.

Sometimes, the only way I know what I thought I heard is either because of who said it and/or it is ridiculous. For example my co-worker said (I thought) "When I was knitting ends in Rome..." when what he actually said was "visiting my friends in Rome".

It is especially a problem with my DH who is a "low soft speaker" (i.e. he mumbles IMHO).

Life is very interesting some days... at least based on what I read and hear

I'm not sure it's the eyes. In our house, it's the brain. I was reading a movie synopsis in the newspaper that referred to 'a woman's disquieting affair with a duke.'

What I read was 'a woman's disgusting affair with a duke,' so I handed the paper to dh in the chair next to me, and he read 'a woman's disgusting affair with a duck.'

I used to live in a very high-crime city and there were these little storage places everywhere named U-Store-It. I was really tired driving home one day and I swear I saw a place named U-Stole-It. Had to look back to make sure and then I realized it was really called U-Store-It. So glad I don't live there anymore LOL
