An English public school was forced to raise its fees. The headmaster, Mr Jackson decided that the best way to raise the extra money was to institute an across the board 6% increase per annum. Unfortunately, when his secretary typed the letter, she missed out a crucial 'n' in the last word, consequently, the letter read thus:
Dear Mr Elsworth
Due to increased costs, I have decided reluctantly to raise the school fees by 7% per anum.
J.B. Jackson (Headmaster)
The following month, one concerned parent replied by saying:
I regret your increase in fees, but I would like to continue paying through the nose as before.
