It's embarrassing when you're behind the times

My son was so excited to be starting middle school, he read the student handbook from cover to cover. I read it with him. It was dated, "2006-7," and the cover page was signed by a principal and vice principal we'd never heard of. Worse, too late he discovered the prices quoted for the cafeteria were wrong. So he didn't have enough money for a snack at recess. Ouch! Imagine if it were a business and the executive roster and price list were obsolete. A good editor can make sure that your communications are current.
