Wrong VT

I've talked about Muphry's Law before.

To avoid falling foul of it, the first rule is, if you're going to criticise other people for typos in their writing, you'd better make sure there aren't any in your own.

If you don't, you'll get stung. Karma for critics if you like.

Here's another good example; this time from Deutsche Bank which posted a recruitment video on YouTube and on its own web site.

The video offers advice to candidates including some tips on proofreading and its importance when trying to impress a prospective employer.

The authoritative voice in the video says, 'I cannot tell you how many times I have seen a cover letter addressed to a competitor. This mistake could cost you an interview. Please make sure to proofread all communications to all firms.'

Then, just seconds later, this appears...


Ouch.
