On English language

It is amazing how typing mistakes can sometimes result in words with a totally opposite meaning. On one occasion I came across the combination of “hire” and “fire”. Just one letter makes a difference between getting a job and losing one. A couple of days ago I have also learned that “friend” and “fiend” can bare oppsite meanings. Today I saw “Therapist” and “The rapist”. Again, one letter makes all the difference…

If you came across examples of one letter changing meaning to opposite, let me know through the comments.
