I had just formed a new company with several people, and the partners didn’t really know (or fully trust) each other. I had written a long letter to the CEO of the company, a man by the name of Fred Jacobs. Since I’m a terrible speller, I tended to blindly hit “accept” for all the changes recommended by the spelling checker. It’s a good thing I decided to proofread the letter one final time, because I was about to send a letter to the CEO (and to all the partners) addressed to “Fraud Jackass”. -- Steve --
