WHY PROOFREADING IS IMPORTANT
During a business trip to the hill station of Khajjiar — the "mini Switzerland" of India — a husband sent a telegram to his wife:
"I wish you were here."
The message received by the wife was:
"I wish you were her."
Shortly thereafter, the wife requested a separation – all because of one pesky little letter!
Moral of the story: Proofreading is not optional! Errors can be life-altering.
