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.

As I pointed out to a friend on FB, we mostly follow British English in Australia, so "enquiry" is correct.
