109. He'd just finished reading a textbook full of typos. Did they bother to read this book before they published it, he wondered. He couldn't believe that they charged $70 for it. He'd circled all the errors with a red pen, so he couldn't get his money back. But he could call the publisher. Cheryl answered. He told her about all the typos. She said, "You know, you're the first person to say anything about that." He couldn't believe it. He asked how many people had bought the book. She said 1,500 people had bought it. "And I'm the only one to complain?" he asked. She said yes. He asked how many people had returned the book. She said nobody had returned it. He couldn't believe it. "I circled 215 misspellings in the book," he said, "and there are only 200 pages!" Cheryl said, "Maybe we should submit it to Guinness." 3.8
