Do you think they paid someone to write this badly?

Earlier today I got an email titled, "To April; From Chuck." At firstI thought it might be from my old high school boyfriend, Chuck. There aren't a lot of Chucks around these days.

Alas, it was not Chuck, who isn't even on Facebook. Curious after getting the email, I googled the real chuck. He seems to be a plant manager at Robroy Industries.

According to its Web site, "Robroy Industries is an organization of synergistic member companies dedicated to product and service leadership within specialty markets!"

Yes, I have no idea what that means, either. And yes, that is their exclamation point.
