Proofreading

Before you email an advertisement for your bar, don't you think you'd want to have someone check over it? Especially if it's going to be sent to hundreds of bitchy queens (or just one bitter old one)?


Be: Stripped.
Be: Bad Spellers.

  2. I once saw a BILLBOARD for a job website that said, "Find More Employee's".

  3. Like Pacalaga, I once saw a want ad for a job that required "attention to detial." I could never decide if they were intentionally being ironic.

    On an unrelated note, I am in the midst of grading many, many papers that could have used a professional editor.

  6. Photoshop and Illustrator do have spell check. As a designer I use them everyday. Just shows that this designer was too lazy or their editor is a tool.

  7. But so many people aren't using the spell check, then! It's just--oh wait, it's just like the rest of the population that can't be arsed to run a spell check before sending off important memos. *crawls into a corner* It burns us, preciousss...

  8. Two words: South Carolina

    I doubt that we'd see photo images like this in my neck of the woods, but spelling and grammar and usage errors are ubiquitous. Words like "ubiquitous," however, are not.

  9. How do you know they *don't* have swashbuckling delears?

    And, seeing as I'm originally from about half an hour from Greenwood, SC, what javajones says is largely true. But not universally so.
