Friends Don’t Let Friends Rely On Spelling and Grammar Checking Programs

So, I was helping a client with her dissertation this morning and before I sent her chapter back, I ran a quick spell check as a prudent last step. Well, wouldn’t you know it, THIS is the “correction” that Word suggested. And no, there was nothing wrong with the spelling or grammar to begin with. I just don’t even know.

Anyway, I sent this screenshot to my client with her chapter and we both got a good laugh out of it, so I guess it was worth something.

Okay, Word, I’ll take your spell check and raise you one reality check.
