Spelling 101

Okay, so my boss sent me a file to proofread. This is not abnormal, I am very good at spelling/grammar, to the point where I considered becoming a professional copy editor at one point.

She has clearly not read through it or even hit the spellcheck button in Word.

But I'm really not sure how the hell she managed to make some of these spelling errors, as you'd THINK she'd notice she typed disapperan instead of disappearance and dn instead of and. These are not simple typos.

So yeah. Annoyed. Again. Bah.

i've seen behavior like that before, where if someone else is going to look at a work product, the first "author" puts no care at all into it.

Sounds like plain laziness to me, she knew you'd check it so she didn't even bother re-reading what she'd written once.

She would have to make an effort to ignore the red lines under those words, or turn off the automatic spell checking that puts the red lines under them.
