Ray sent me this screenshot from a webinar on good email etiquette. I don't generally do screenshots here, but I could not resist the irony of such unprofessional bad writing in a presentation on how to write good emails. The seemingly random quotation marks are less offensive to me than the serious need for tightening. "go ahead and" is never meaningful, and here they use it twice in as many sentences. Awesome.
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands".
