Adventures in English

Got an email purporting to be from Intuit rejecting our latest payroll. We don’t use Intuit payroll, so of course the whole thing was made up. But some of the word choices were hard to hate:

  • Finances would be gone away from below account # ending in 9777 on Fri, 11 Jan 2013 06:02:13 +0100
  • amount to be seceded: 8777 USD
  • Paychecks would be procrastinated to your personnel accounts on: Fri, 11 Jan 2013 06:02:13 +0100

I will have more to say about this next week, after I get my payroll procrastinated.
