    I think you should correct it - in red ink - and send it back.

    Obvious it is to replace the author of this ad.
    Sheesh, the nuns pounded grammar into us. Maybe we should go
    back to repetition, repetition, repetition because I'm
    not too impressed with today's grammar or writing.

    I think you should apply for the position of whoever writes their want-ads!

    I saw an advertisement the other day for a professional cleaning service which had several misspellings and other errors on it and thought to myself...hmmm...maybe I should contact them and offer to trade services. I could correct their ad if they would come clean my This flyer is up everywhere all over town!

    On a serious note, best not to reply to OR apply for that job.

    A lot of job ads are actually "phishing" scams where they are trying to get enough information about you to steal your identity. A resume or job application provides an awful lot of information.

    That ad definitely smacks of a phishing expedition to me. Much as I'd be tempted to red-line the heck out of it, best just to stay away.
