Everyone can make a mistake and an error, regardless of technology used. But it's good that we catch them and hopefully get them corrected. We all help each other as shoppers.

I have been an editor. Trust me, that is most likely there because people need the reminders.

I have seen some reports come in that were so horribly written, I could barely understand what they meant. I am talking things like this: “the costumer service persen did a job and I liked how dey dun their job.”

I WISH I was exaggerating. And then I could always tell when someone used voice recognition rather than type it out.


Halloween is coming up."Costumer" services may be in demand.

I focus on doing a good job--I am being paid, after all. I spend no time worrying about the spelling of others.

Usually prefaced with strong threats . . . from time to time for clarification of the guidelines that were so badly butchered thay were incomprehensible! Major pet peave!

You spelled "thay" wrong. In the US, anyway, it's spelled "they."

I totally agree that MSC should set the example but the guidelines that we are given are not what the MSC's have to give their clients. Also, the editors and people in the quality assurance departments probably want to keep their work down too so the reports can be turned in to the clients in a timely manner.
