I've posted before that typos, bad grammar and poor punctuation really drive me crazy. So this week, I'm sharing some posts and a video I've seen that speak to my frustrations on the subject.
Here's a man who's on a mission. Jeff Deck hunts down typos and tries to fix them. Read his story at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=129086941. Keep up the good work, Jeff!
Another post about typos on signs and menus is at http://cgwebhelp.com/?p=308.
As someone who has reviewed hundreds of resumes over the years from prospective employees, I found the following to be amusing. Whether you're in the midst of writing your own resume or you're someone who is reviewing resumes, I think you'll get a few chuckles out of the following links:

Book Publishing Errors
Another of my pet peeves is when I come across grammar and spelling errors in a book that I've purchased. Shouldn't these have been caught by someone at the publishing house before the book was printed? Take a look at this list of errors caught in one book: http://www.bookerrata.com/books/undervolcano.html. I know the published date was a while ago but there's still no excuse in my book for errors like these.
If you have any examples of proofreading errors you'd like to share, please send us your comments!
