Spelling is everything
This happened to me many, many years ago.

My boss made me proofread everything he wrote. I don't know why he chose me as his proofreader but he did. One day I found one of his papers in my inbox. Upon reading the title I howled with laughter. The title was

Procurement of a Wench

I advised him to change it to

Acquisition of a Wrench


Thought I'd share.

If your boss was Attila the Hun, the first one would make more sense....

RE: Spelling is everything
I had a boss who could barely spell. We'd have memos about "emercengies" often. And the emails would say "we're behind do to bad wether" and so on. Two of us had the habit of having red pens so we could circle errors. It looked like a crowd had jumped into a blender. So much red.

You also have to be careful in posting here. One slight misplacement and your post can be urined!

How do you spell colour?

Grammar also...

"Could have", "would have", and "will have". Not could of, would of, and will of.

And yes; I love the Oxford comma too.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Commas belong inside quotes.

Except for your heresy of putting the comma outside, I agree. Smile
