Pubic

My accountant gave me a silly desk toy a few weeks ago.

It's a deck chair that you sit your phone in.

At first I scoffed, but it's actually a cool way to keep an eye on your text machine while you drive through the daily routine that is work.

So it's been on my desk for 4-5 weeks and finally someone noticed that they mis-spelled Public ... in the worst possible way.

I've blurred out the name of my accountant. They're a great bunch of people (for accountants) and I don't want their reputation sullied.

After all they're numbers people not wordsmiths.

My worst spelling mistake came early in my career. I typed shite wall units instead of white wall units leading to the destruction of 40,000 Skopos catalogues. I'd have fired me for doing that.
