Yes, I know bitching about your job in your blog is the #1 way to get yourself fired, but I’ve done it so many times now, I’m starting to feel invincible. And what would this blog be without it besides a lot of American Idol rants (see below)?
One of my bosses gave me something he’d written up that he needed typed. His handwriting was typically illegible, so whenever I couldn’t read his writing, I guessed. At one point, I came across the following phrase (I’ve marked the illegible parts with x’s so you can play along): “… either explicitly or imxxxxxxly…”
Think hard now. Do you have a guess as to what goes in the blank? Pencils down… now!
If you’re like me, you probably would’ve typed “implicitly” and continued on.
And if you’re like my boss, you would’ve “corrected” me by crossing out “implicitly” and writing “impliedly”.
