and I should continue to listen to you now because?

We had a proofreading seminar at work earlier this week. A proofreading "expert" gave us tips via video conference. Handouts for the seminar were given to everyone that attended. The expert got through points one and two on the handout. It was point three where we ran into some trouble. Note to self: If you're ever leading a proofreading seminar and someone asks about the mistake on the handout, act like it was a test. Act like that was SUPPOSED to be jacked up to see if people were paying attention.

Point three stated the following: Ways to Proofread, part 1 (sample practice exercises provided to be provided near end of seminar)

Nice work lady. Yeah, you're real credible.
