Did you mean “incompetence”?
Friday, February 2nd, 2007

I’m sure you’ve all seen countless spelling and grammar errors on signs, fliers and other printed materials. It’s really amazing how many people are apparently happy to send their writing out to the world without so much as a single proofread. Some of those errors are more amusing than others. This specimen, which we received the other day, scores pretty high on the humor scale.

I obscured the details to spare the author from embarrassment. However, you have my word that this is real — we received it as a serious communication. No humor was intended by the person who sent it. The lesson? A spellchecker is not a substitute for a human proofreader. Butt you already new that, write?
