Okay… so I get a fax from a contractor asking for some changes to an invoice. In this case, it means more money, so hey, I’m there.
This is the note on the fax:
Retention needs to be bill in full before retention billing can be excepted.
Huh? Okay, bill instead of billed is probably just a typo. I know I forget endings on words quite often. But HELLO! accepted NOT excepted! What the hell is wrong with people these days? It’s simple basic freaking vocabulary!
Or, am I expecting too much out of people? If you’re going to work in a field where you will be sending out correspondence to other people PLEASE understand the basic concepts of grammar, punctuation and the ENGLISH LANGAUGE!
