Russell: Hey, LeeAnn, you were an English major, right?

LeeAnn: Yes.

Russell: Could you proofread this for me?

LeeAnn: I don't know. Do you want me to proof it for content or for structure?

Russell: For everything.

LeeAnn: So you're asking me to fact check all of the facts and figures and to parse each line to find any spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors.

Russell: That's right. I used the spell check on it, but some typos may have slipped through. I wouldn't be surprised if it were riddled with other errors, too.

LeeAnn: Right. What about the formatting?

Russell: Check that, too. You can edit out the errors as you go along.

LeeAnn: You want me to proofread and edit it?

Russell: Sure, if you don't mind.

LeeAnn: You do realize that this is a 400-page document, right?

Russell: Is there a problem?
