    Default Proofreading FAIL

    I got a flyer from my school today about the fall family weekend that it holds every year. The equestrian club has done pony rides for the last few years, so we were automatically put into the schedule for this year (no one actually asked us if we'd be interested in doing it again, but I digress...)
    This is what I see when I read the schedule. Anyone notice anything a little weird?

    It's for all those insomniac four-year-olds.

    Pot, meet kettle? Proofreading is one word, not two.

    Hmm, thought so, but my spell check said it was wrong? Odd...

    How do you deal with the liability issue? My club always talks about this and I just have an anxiety attack thinking about it.

    Oh, and you're going to have a looooonnnng day!

    I missed the time thing - lol.

    But I was wondering why it said "ages for a small fee."

    That's a fantastic idea! If I started charging for it, maybe that would fund my horse problem.

    Yeah, I thought it would make a darn good magic trick for kids, but not in the creepy Something Wicked This Way Comes way.
