In checking documents it’s important to “dot your I’s and cross your T’s.”
The trouble with those skinny little I’s is that they disappear when standing next to a lower case L. I’ve seen a couple of cases recently, and I have actually sinned thus myself.
Responsibilties – there should be a lower case i between the l and t.
Stablity – there should be a lower case i between the b and the l.
And here’s the one that my boss to the second power noticed in my spreadsheet today:
Faciliities – after reading all day, the eyes get blurry and the I’s, L’s and T’s run together.
Ouch! My bad.
So, my advice is to do a double-take whenever you see something that rhymes with “abilities” to make sure your I’s are not only dotted, but are present in the correct number.
Funny Typo of the Day:
Believing devices, instead of Relieving devices.
Those pressure valves are devout little guys with a hope and a prayer for safe operations!
Profound Quote of the Day:
“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities!
Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”
