Typos. Most shameful ones you made.

Yes, sometimes applying for jobs is stressful = too many too late, low blood sugar!

Otherwise, resulting in weirdness like, "I have an MA and and MFA..." in the first line of a proposal for a proofreading job. ~sigh~

I cannot type "git push origin master".

 

It always comes out "git push original master"

Why, when I want to write Upwork does it invariably come out as Upwrok? And I am not alone.

I type extremely fast, and invariably, a word ending with 'ng' ends up ending with 'gn"..........ugh.

Nichola,

 

I remember when you accidently called a client by another name. Your post was amusing:

 

"Please may we have a pink-faced emoticon in messages. My eyes, crossed from overwork and lack of sleep and a profusion of clients (most dormant) down the left-hand side of my messages page, led me to calling an undormant client by another client's name. I am forgiven, but it was embarrassing and to lighten my humble apologies, I would have like to have inserted a pink face- a very pink face."

Lol, Lena! I am still pink-faced about that.

 

BTW - where is the embarrassed emoticon in messages (Top priority - of course!)
