One of my favourite email threads with a potential supplier:

I corrected, in red pen, the first third of an incredibly poorly written snail-mail flyer from a book company to our school and sent it back to them. The grammar and spelling were awful!
I received a phone call from a senior suit at the company thanking me and £100 of book tokens for my school
I've done the same with the new website of my favourite local coffee shop - no vouchers as yet!
I wouldn't buy anything from anybody who put so many kisses at the bottom of they're email!
By the way, have you seen the picture of an email that I received from a guy who prints raffle tickets?
Raffle tickets: oh dear!
Mind you, a friend runs a (successful) printing firm. When I did a stint I was appalled at the standards of spelling and grammar of the designers, and that the customers rarely picked up on the errors!
