Uh oh!

I just noticed someone wrote “Ut oh” and it took me a moment or two to figure out why. Loads of people don’t pronounce their t’s; they replace them with a glottal stop, e.g bo!ul instead of bottle. But they know the words still have a T in them when you write them down. So when they come to write “uh oh” down, they assume they need to write a T where the glottal stop is. Interesting.*
