Chicago Manual of Style proofreading question February 2, 2012Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff.
Grant Hamilton shared this gem with the ATA Business Practices listserv this morning. It made me smile, so I wanted to share it.

Q. How do you recover from a real proofreading blooper—the kind that has everyone in gales and is terribly embarrassing?
A. Naturally, we have very little experience with this. Is there absolutely no way to blame it on someone else? If not, you probably should keep a low profile until it blows over. Lucky for you, proofreaders automatically have a fairly low profile.
