It is that time of year when teachers write references to support student applications for scholarships. Mostly this involves uploading a file containing a reference. There are, however, some dinosaurs that insist on emailing you read only PDF template. Why? Do they expect me to hand write a reference. They wouldn’t even be able to read my hand writing. This has happened more than once this year and frankly is a waste of my time. As it turns out I just sent the offending organisations a Word document in a similar format.
He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.John Cotton Dana (1856–1929)
