Sheesh, who let the dogs out?

While you and Sharon measure style usage, I prefer to focus on the gray
matter in people's heads. I don't care if people send me a resume written
on clay tablets. If somebody is smart, capable, and bright - who cares
what styles they used.

I can teach somebody how to use styles in Word. I can't teach somebody to
be smart. Granted, a smart person probably would use the styles.

However, you will have to take a very painful technology test when you
come in to interview with me. And I might bring my German Shepard to bark
at you. Woof woof.

I'm not hiring tech writers either...just a new administrative assistant.
