Holiday Whingeing*

In my line of work, October through December are the busiest months of the year. That means being gone more than home, and completely losing about six nights sleep per month, never mind perpetual jet lag. My compatriots and I could earn a decent income as circadian rhythm disruption lab rats.

However, enquiring minds want to know why the heck the text editor flags (then, on occasion surreptitiously "corrects") words as being wrong, when they appear in the supplied dictionary. "Whingeing" is just one example. If I turn my back, it becomes "winging".
