Cut cuddle and be Cute

Are you questioning my sexual habits or lack there of?

Yesterday I scanned my honors program acceptance letter. I was pretty insulted to find the following sentence buried deep in the letter:

Scholars also have opportunities on a regular basis to socialize, network, and converse with others in the HoProgram.

That's rather forward don't you think?

For anyone who's wondering, all that happened was that
trunkated the line. It should have said honors program. But I think that's the funniest scanning error I've seen in a while. What are some of your favorites?

You've got to be kidding me.

Employees with disabilities are an embarrassment.

How much do you want to bet this person was proud of a "diverse" culture at the company? When will we get past the idea that disabilities are something to be ashamed of? When are we going to start respecting everyone for who they are, not what biology, chemestry, appearances and genetics say about them?

I don't want to start a flame war or attack on the person making the comments or the company she no longer represents. I'm glad to hear that the company denies these claims, but I hope it's not just a method of saving face. The longer I'm in college, the more I feel like it's not the physical, mental, emotional or other disability that is the barrier, it's society's perceptions that are the true handicap.
