too much typing—since 2003


rewrite needed

An e-mail at my academic address began as follows:

"If you have recieved this email, please forward it to the graduate students and other interested parties in your department."

Never mind the irony that a letter originating from and sent to English departments manages to misspell "receive." What amuses me is that first phrase.

What, then, are we supposed to do if we have not received the e-mail?

(Uh-oh...I just realized that, in fact, all of you have not received the e-mail. Apparently, the answer is: witness it being mocked.)
