Editor’s Corner: Embarrassing but Funny Mistakes

Good morning, all!

As I was searching for topics to write about for Editor’s Corner, I came across this list called Twenty of the Worst Typos, Grammatical Errors & Spelling Mistakes We’ve Ever Seen by HubSpot, and I thought I would share the ones that are work-appropriate with you to serve two purposes: it’s an opportunity to have a chuckle, and it’s a not so gentle reminder to always edit your own writing (no matter how short).

The error is not immediately obvious in some of the images, so take your time. And remember you Symitar folk, when you’re writing something at work that you plan to publish or send out into the world, you can send it to the Symitar editing crew for a review. We’ll do our best to save you from any embarrassment. 😊

Here you go. Enjoy!

We’re having a little trouble imagining this.
