Perfectional for Professional

One of my students wrote that he wanted to be a perfectional soccer player when he got older.

Does that work as an eggcorn for “professional”?

Professionals strive for perfection. They act perfectionally.

Re: Perfectional for Professional

Perfectional eggcorn, tyepower. I love it.

I’m signing because Anna Banda has attacked my daughter who was 15 at the time. At that time Anna was a bails bond. I told Anna my daughter has a mom that can defended her and to talk to me. I told Anna how can she tell stuff to a 15 year old and her being an adult and a perfectional position. I told her if she don’t stop that I’ll be talking to her boss.

People in these type of jobs are a very valuable part of our society and for people to look down on them is just plain snobbery imo. Not everyone wants to have a perfectional job believe it or not.
