Smarter Than A First-Grader?

5 Jan

I belong to a list-serve where people post requests for graphic/technical assistance. This note came my way earlier today:

I am at a lost…..

I work for a private elementary school.  We are looking fir a logo redesign…we have had several people to volunteer and the product we have gotten back is missing the mark……thus I am searching for a Graphic Designer to do a Logo Redesign for the school.  This would be a volunteer project….  Please feel free to forward off list. For more information, please eMail me.

SERIOUSLY? Since your note says you “work” there, I’m going to assume you’re receiving a paycheck, and not just volunteering. Presumably that means at some point, someone interviewed you or you completed an application. Was your writing this horrific then, or have you helped out in the first grade room a bit too long?

(And PS: This photo is an actual note written by a kindergarten student. Please note that he proofread his work and made appropriate revisions. It’s called editing: try it sometime!)
