    I had a reply to an e-mail just today, subject abridged by an automated reply service that referred to a training course I’m going on

    “re: Please confirm your Route Cause Anal” 😯

    (missing a “ysis training dates” just in case you were wondering!)

    Many years ago, in the Grauniad (where else!) the National Trust placed an advert for a Director of Pubic Relations.

    I remember an early writing a performance report for a company sales team. The key performance target was the “New Business Count”

    The presentation went out to everyone

    Northern Region Count : Mr Jones with 49
    Central Region Count : Mr Smith with 52
    Southern Region Count : Mr Laifer with 43

    Overall Total **** : Mr Toothill with 69

    There was an O missing betwfore the swear filter caught it. I could have done with a swear filter before sending the report 🙁

    That’s even better with the route/root typo as well 😆

    I recently sent an email to a client confirming what items are due to be shipped on a particular date, however, I replied whilst out on a bike ride and had stopped in some woods to shelter from the rain.
    Anyway, my stupid cold hands wrote ‘sufficient quantity to fu k a flat rack’.

    My favourite typo isn’t print. Its the woman who had angel in Gothic scrypt tattooed on her back. Tattooist spelt it angle. 😀

    I dunno, “root” is Australian slang for sex…

    I once told my girlfriend that I wanted to kick her puppy and then
    dual her aunt.

    Damned predictive text.

    (That joke worked a lot better in 2006 when I wrote it and T9 was commonplace…)

    I applied for this, withdrew when they corrected the spelling.
    In this case L really was other people.

    @ useless hippy…along these lines i met a chap in Greifswald ( former east Germany ) who was telling me about only being able to listen to ‘ western music ‘ underground and had to be very careful of the Stasi ( secret police ). Western music could only be bought on the black-market….etc etc. You get the picture.
    Any way, he showed me the homemade tattoo, on his arm, of his favorite band….Iorn Maiden.
