A true professional

Personal typist

Why not, you ask? Because I’m not entirely sure I’d want a personal typist who

  1. Likes to use run-on sentences.
  2. Is too “buzy” to double-check her spelling.
  3. Wouldn’t recognize parallelism if it bonked her on the head.
  4. Seems confused about when to use question marks.
  5. Types two periods at the end of a sentence.

Other than that, she’s probably great!

. . . . .

Stop by every 1st and 3rd Wednesday for a peek into the world of spelling, punctuation, or grammar gone wrong!

Ok guessing her qualifications have to do with the fact that there is no trace of white-out LOL
I love my wordprocessor and couldn’t live without a spellchecker to catch my dyslexic typos.

okay, you’ve hit upon one of my pet peeves. . . the complete idiot! Seriously, it is scary to think how many people out there wouldn’t recognize the problems with this flyer. Try hiring good help and you’ll see what I mean. Not only can’t they write, they don’t speak much better. Very good photo and post!

It’s nice that she put her “skills” right out on display like that. No guessing as to the quality of her work!

I WONDER IF SHE KNOWS HOW TO TYPE WITHOUT USING ALL CAPS?

LOL, Shauna and Nicole! Sad but true.

Are we assuming the typist is a she or do we know that it is a she? Just curious :-)

Deb,

To avoid the “he/she” reference, this was simply a decision to choose one pronoun over another. I could have just as easily used the generic “he.”

Thanks for stopping by!
