The other day I got called to the carpet on a typo at work that went out on a flyer to the masses.
Even though no less than a dozen sets of eyeballs looked at said flyer before we hit print, we all managed to overlook the misspelling in the word February.
I take full blame, but I also use this disclaimer: if I typed it, I more than likely won’t notice the typo because my mind, and therefore my eyes, see what it is supposed to say, not what it actually says. It’s a sad but true fact!
It was another good reminder of why having someone proofread your writing for you is so, so important!
My new motto is the more, the better!
