Typos have a life of their own…. HELP!

by Rod Smith

I ordered the book containing the 450 DifficultRelationships.com columns and – to my dismay – found numerous typos. PLEASE, if while reading a column on this website, you trip over a typo, please drop me a comment so I can fix it!

In the meantime I have decided that typos are like ZITS:

Seven things to know about Zits (and typos):

  1. Zits appear in conspicuous places
  2. Zits emerge no matter how much you scrub
  3. Zits (on you) appear larger than they are
  4. Zits look worse if you try to fix them
  5. Zits go underground when you look for them
  6. Zits have a willful and perverse life of their own
  7. Zits collaborate – get one, and before you know it, three new ones appear

Typos are zits in print. Actually, typos are worse, they are like finding a fly in your soup, or a dead mouse in a box of cereal after you’ve just indulged in two bowls.

Don’t let my typos stop you from enjoying the Fourth Edition of A Short Course in Good Manners – see, I knew it was “Fourth” and not “Forth”. With the help of readers we’ll get the website cleaned up, too.

Oh for the day the copy editor could get her hands on the web just as she does before the column goes to print.

Thanks for your help,

Rod
