Here's a Microsoft blooper that my hubby Dave happened upon yesterday. He emailed me the screenshot, and I said, "in a timely fashion? Is that the joke?" I mean, "in a timely fashion" is kind of an archaic way to talk, but it's not that funny. And then he pointed out that it doesn't actually say "timely fashion." Almost... but not quite.
So really, this feels good, in a way. Good in the same way that I find quiet, deep pleasure when seeing other people's children misbehaving in the supermarket, or other people being criticized at work. Look - it's not only us dumb Israelis messing up the English language! Turns out we're in pretty good company!
