Keep the pedants happy

December 26, 2008

Here’s one way to keep the pedantic editing types like me happy… (seen on a report I received):

“If you find any errors in this report, they’re there for a purpose. Some people actually like looking for them and we strive to please as many people as possible. If you find any typos or grammatical errors, please send the details to me. I will reward you with a small gift – unless you find so many that I feel you deserve a large gift!”
