When I was still a clerical (pre-tech-writing), a potential employer showed me a few of their event flyers to show me what they did. "Thanks," I said, "Did you notice this typo at the bottom?". "Really?" the interviewer responded. Showed them (I think some letters in the address got transposed or something).
Yes, I got the job!
