Thoughts While Taking a Copyediting Test

• This is just a formality right?

• I mean who has time to actually grade this, really?

• Wow this is taking a long time?

• They probably really just want to know if I can follow directions. Put my name on the top right corner. Send it back to the right address.

• Wow this is really hard.

• Hahah I’ve been working on this for three hours is that actually possible hahaha

• I wonder how much of the job is doing this exact thing, and if it’s a lot, do I actually want this job?

• I could just … not do it.

• Four hours. Am I being punk’d?

• I wonder if the answers are posted online.
