An Unfortunate Typo

All, I have recently entered the world of freelance writing and editing, and have been loving it.

However, because nearly 100% of my communication with clients occurs online, mistakes can happen. Some are irrelevant, some are…like this.

It was a day just like today–actually, it was today–that I tried to type the very benign words “You got it!” to a freelance client. This was supposed to convey boyish enthusiasm and a passion for the work.

Instead, I hit enter and was suddenly looking at this phrase:

“You go tit.”

And now everything hangs in the balance.

I am recommitted to slowing down and breathing.

    Just tell them it was a tic! 🙂

    Very funny, Josh.

    This is hilarious. And so embarrassing. And it makes me so glad I am not the only one who has made this exact same mistake in the past.

    Ha! I once sent a video of Kermit getting turned down by Miss Piggy to every attorney in our whole agency. Internet faux pas!

    I just wanted to say that I just finished your book yesterday, and really loved it! From one redheaded librarian to another – THANK YOU! 🙂
