Everyone has done it, sent an email or letter without proofreading their words. What happens when you don’t proof read something, you have to make a retraction, you feel embarrassed and in some cases, there are people who get in trouble for not proofing, depending on what was written. In this case, someone write a response to Antonia Wright and added the words “I hate” before her name.
While this happened in England, it is a great reminder of what could happen if you say or write the wrong thing, even accidentally. In this case, the letter has gone viral, because of Antonia’s Facebook post.
At this point, the Doncaster city council is “looking into the matter” and claim what they wrote as “I Hate” was supposed to be something else…um, ok, so what else could it have been? According the the office staff, it was supposed to be “I have written to”.
This isn’t over, but it is a great reminder of what could happen, if you don’t check your work…which is why I am reading this blog over…and over…and over….
