While trying to figure out how to handle the fact that my client overpaid me, I happened to glance at Yahoo! and the top article on the page spelled “would” “wood.” As in “Wood you like…”
Seriously? I mean, yes. I have a post with many, many commonly confused spellings. Here. But I never thought I’d have to add wood vs. would to that list. It’s truly a low day when that shows up on a “professional” website.
And, of course, I was already marveling over the incompetence of people with the whole overpayment thing. Of course, I’ve already told them they’d overpaid me. It’s just a matter of how to handle it.
Last time they did this, (no, it’s not the first time) I went to the bank, got a cashier’s check issued, and mailed it to them. (Proof is useful.) But this time I really don’t feel inclined to spend an hour of my time to fix their mistake. So, maybe I’ll just carry it forward until I’ve earned it out instead.
But seriously, folks. Does no one double-check anything anymore?
(And, because irony is so beautiful, I’m sure I have at least one error in this post that someone will think is blatant and stupid.)
