We’ve recently started editing scientific and medical manuscripts for a number of authors in Europe. One of them, a professor and surgeon at the Pomeranian Medical University in Poland, was kind enough to send this email:
Thanks very much for your perfect job. You forgot about the invoice!
First of all, I’m not sure that any editing we do is perfect . . . but we try really hard, and it’s wonderful to know that our client thinks it is.
Second, it’s just darn sweet of him to remind me to send him an invoice.
Dear client, we love you and will keep working hard to get your manuscripts as clean and correct as they can possibly be!
