I can’t stand sloppiness from people who call themselves professionals. Consider these:

  • A proofreader who lets mistakes slip even though the spellchecker underlines them.
  • A candidate for a frontend developer job whose CV is a design disaster: mixed fonts, wrong punctuation, etc.
  • Another candidate for the same job who can’t even spell the names of the technologies he claims to know.

Am I setting the bar too high?
