Funny Typos in progress notes documentation

I work as a physician advisor, and I get to read a lot of documentation by various health care workers. In the last 3 years, I found a lot of typos in the notes and I used to save them just for fun. Here I am sharing some of them. You can see the left side of the table and guess the right side words for fun.
