August 13, 2006: OCD Man Says: Watch Those Commas!

I'm told from time to time that I am needlessly picky about grammar. Usually I am told that by people whose grammar I am correcting; it's funny how that works out. But I really like our books to be right. I like contracts to be right, too.

And in Canada right now, there's a company that's going to spend more than two million dollars extra because they didn't pay attention to one comma in a contract. Read it and weep. Or giggle, if you like.
