Customer or Costumer? Do you know the differences?

These two words are sometimes confused, leading to quite funny outcomes. Usually the word we want to use is customer, meaning client, buyer. However if we write costumer we will end up meaning someone who makes, sells or rents costumes for theatrical productions. Quite different isn't it? Wink

These are the definitions, according to Dictionary.com

  • Customer
