And you wonder why I hate my job... part 49...

So, here's the deal.

I'm a writer. That's my job title. However, as a part of my job, I am required to paste in pre-written text. This text is not written by writers. I am not allowed to change any of this text or even suggest a change to this text, no matter how foul it may be.

So, today, I'm pasting in a bit of text that is supposed to describe a product's benefit. It reads:

No need to leave a PC on at all the time

... maybe I should have stuck with newspaper delivery...

Gosh what bad grammar and sentence construction--you're right. It should have read: At all the time, no need to leave a PC on! Gawd, don't you're company know how's right?
