Importance of Proof reading

A man wanted to celebrate his wife's Birthday by throwing a party. So he ordered a birthday cake on the phone.

The salesman asked him what message , he wanted to put on the cake.

He thought for a moment , and said, put "you're getting older, but you're getting better".

The salesman asked "how do you want me to put it?"

The man said 'Well...put "You are getting older" at the top and
"but you are getting better" at the bottom.

When the cake was unveiled ,at the party , all the guests were aghast at the message , on the cake.

It read: "You are getting older at the top, but you are getting better at the bottom"!!

Moral of the Story:

1. Always proof-read everything before you send.

2. Don't trust others to write it right for you.

3. Don't order cakes by telephone.
