Ise been tryna getta job fo a long long time. But I jis caint spell 2 good.

But seriously. Perfection is unattainable. I once sent out a resume with the
words "pig documents", not "big documents". Certainly my spell checker didn't
catch it. And my eye didn't catch the inverted tail. Oh, well.

I say, if you want a proof reader, hire one.
If you want a copy editor, hire one.
If you want a writer, hire one.
Etc.
