Just Wait Till You See the Swingset!

No, spell checkers haven’t put a stop to embarrassing gaffes and screw-ups. This (actual) email has been circulating in my office the last few days:

My sellers just contacted me and were wondering if your buyers would be interested in purchasing a few items for a great price. We thought if they are first time home buyers they may be in need of a grill and a lawn mower that were both purchased less then 3 years ago and genitally used at best. If they do have any interest the (seller’s) thought $100 for both would be a good starting price. Would you mind asking them for me and letting us know so they can exclude it from the final packing.
