The Writers Blind Spot

So after yesterdays rant about the ailing literacy coming out of our public schools, I started thinking about things I have problems with. After a bit of thought I realized that there are certain words which seem to stump me every time I try to spell them. The word guarantee, for example. I don’t know why, but I have too look up the spelling every single time I use it. Which might explain why I don’t use it that much. So this embarrassing little problem leads me to ask:

“Am I the only one?”

Are there others out there who suffer from this as well. Maybe we should form a support group!? (I’ll bring the sugar cookies). What words do you tend to trip on when writing? If this is a common problem then it needs a cool name. I like the one I picked for the title but I’m always open to suggestions.
