Oh, for a proof-reader!

This flyer gained top marks for presentation (a black envelope with a question mark on it). I was so intrigued I had to open it but I was so let down by what I saw that I had to share it here*: A typo on both sides.

This seems to affirm my belief that I am needed as an advertising proof-reader, but am I really the only one who cares? If so, I would not only be superfluous, but actively resented.

* I think suggesting this is a clever ploy by Stephen to further spread his message using irritating little pedants like myself would be giving a real estate agent far too much credit.

It wasn't even my junk mail! I found it on the street while taking a walk and the black envelope with the question mark on it piqued my curiosity just enough to open it. In that respect his marketing succeeded but he soon got me off side with the content.
