In Brazil, children who don’t show proper manners and are impertinent are told to stop being ‘mal educado.’
I would say around 75-100 attended and most dressed formal (Tux). We sat with fellow pax from the UK that taught us uninformed yanks the proper educate for the event.
why couldn’t someone tell me how to do that and still be following the proper educate for dealing with this sort of business?

His companions copied his actions as though unsure of the proper educate for the situation.
Sometimes prom will test your knowledge on silverware usage ( I kid you not, my Consumer Ed. Teacher showed us a video on proper dining educate. )
There’re lots of these, probably a mix of Cupertinos and genuine eggcorns.
If these are siliceous in origin, it makes you wonder whether spell-checking is spawning confusions that are then picked up and spread because of eggcorn consistency.
