Higher standards for some people

Written By: admin - Feb• 10•12

Colleen sent this in, and I thank her.  It’s pretty clearly a typo, and while I certainly agree that one should proofread pamphlets before paying to have them published, I don’t feel like I have to worry that the author actually thinks this is correct.

ON THE OTHER HAND.

This pamphlet is from a health center, where students go to have their health issues addressed.  And it occurs to me that one place where a missing zero can make a pretty big difference, it’s in the medical field.  I’d like my zero back, please.

    Spaces between the time and a.m. and p.m. wouldn’t hurt either.

    What more unwholesome, dastardly joy is there, than to correct a brigadier? In your sentence-

    “And it occurs to me that one place where a missing zero can make a pretty big difference, it’s in the medical field.”

    -I believe you mean to say either-

    “And it occurs to me that if there’s one place where a missing zero can make a pretty big difference, it’s in the medical field.”

    -or-

    “And it occurs to me that one place where a missing zero can make a pretty big difference is in the medical field.”
