I hate proofreading other people's work. But I definitely understand why people would rather someone else read over it than do it themselves.

My team at work as like 18 people on it. The overall senior manager, and then 3 managers under him and everyone else is under them.

Only one of the managers is in today, and she's not mine. Kind of feels like a Thursday.

yeah and i'm "independent" from this system so i'm a complete outsider looking at it which helps too.

That's probably why I got mine. My program makes the students have a full, 30+ hour/week internship so even the worst students land one because of their availability

I sort of like proofreading people's papers, but I tend to suggest changes to the cadence and flow of the writing too often for some people's taste. Sometimes make their writing sound too much like my own.

Also, my ex was a champion at proofreading since English wasn't her first language. She was great at picking out things that sounded okay but were actually garbage.
