Act your age, not your shoe size

Ah, the spellchecker. A godsend for millions of people, but not quite so user-friendly if you’re dyslexic. It has a nasty habit of changing words which can completely alter the tone and/or meaning of a text or email. One such clanger occurred when Michelle, our Berkshire Assistant Coordinator returned from maternity leave. Dom contacted our service provider to reinstate her email account:

Hi Mark, Michelle is returning from Maturity leave so I need to get her profile re-set up.
