    or bad sentence structure.

    Damn, I hate bad sentence structure in a photo outsourcing service.
    Actually, I guess I am a photo outsourcing service.
    Other people ask me to take their photos.

    But I have one up on this guy because my sentence structure is good - and my cut and paste is excellent.

    Ugh. I would be so upset if that happened to me.

    Outsourcing really does have its downsides. That's why we also have to be more careful especially in the hiring process.

    This guide might be helpful for you to avoid this mistake the next time you outsource your work to other people. The second point in the article applies to this situation well. You have to test them before fully hiring them.

    Hope this doesn't happen again. That's too much waste in our work and busy lives.

    Wow, this guy can't even spam properly, no link to the third rate outsourcing company he is trying to sell.
