Mensagem:  Actually, I meant "mistick." Normally, you'd "tick" the correct alternative. But if you're distracted, you might "mistick" (tick the wrong one). I know it sounds weird, but I was just curious. I Googled the word and found sentences like the following:

If you've misticked or entered anything incorrectly in any of the forms for a graduate position, you deserve not to get the job.

Does it sound too bad for a native speaker?
