01:55 pm - Painful Typos
Piece of correspondence misrouted to my desk:
Pels chean my adrees:

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Tank you!
Discounting the name and address, only the two shortest words are spelled right. That's like, a 33% success rate.

The worst thing is that this guy (who, judging by his penmanship, is probably quite literate in some other language) could've avoided looking like an idiot if he'd simply filled out a standard Chean of Adrees form.

If he spelled his adrees with the same success rate he's likely never to receive mail ever again.

I'm hoping he can at least get that part right... but I'll never know. It was given to my department -- which doesn't handle adrees cheanges -- and nobody here could figure out where it beloned. It ended up on my desk because I happened to be at lunch. Luckily, I do know what department handles this sort of thing, and I forwarded it on.

Next up in exciting typos, I have something where someone says they MOMORIZED their debit card PIN. "MOMORIZED" is in all caps and bold print, as if they're calling attention to the typo. Unfortunately, I'm probably not allowed to scan and post it here...

I don't have anything to add, other than this is indeed hilarious, and your dedication to the joke by making up the form as well is much appreciated.

Er, I mean, that's TOTALLY the form you use at work!

Wink. Wink.

I'm thinking about starting up a class on deadpan humor. All I need is a small capital investment to secure a meeting place and advertising. I'll waive your enrollment if you can help me out with that.
