One day, he was reading one of his new product announcements when he gasped!
The copy read "continuous flaw" instead of continuous flow. He was about to
blame me for the error (after all, he didn't do it!), when he discovered it
was the printer's fault. The irony is that if it had been his mistake, he
would have said it was my fault for not catching it!
