So I have to tell you what I did Friday

Part of my job is to send out news releases and update our university Web site with said press releases. Naturally, not all the news we receive is “earth-shattering,” but we still want it out there, so we have a section for briefs, or “Newsmakers" (see red circled part).



I was typing up a particular Newsmaker about our English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta, and I typed in a short headline, which is not shown on the Newsmaker portion but will help me find the brief if necessary. I hit submit, and it went online.

On the wrong part.

Instead of putting it in the Newsmaker column to the right, I put it right under, “News at University.” Okay, not so bad, really, right?

Uh…except for the headline.

I used to make fun of this when I was a member of this honor society, but when I was putting the headline in, I didn’t think much about it.

Think about the initials of the honor society…

That’s right. Right below “News at University” was the headline “STD.”

Fabulous.

Thankfully, though, I fixed the problem quickly…I’m crossing my fingers that nobody saw. But for those who might have…I hope they laughed. ;)

LOL!!! Glad I was only a member of "PSP" (phi sigma pi - business honor society). PSP is a little bit better than STD! :)
