is there a copy editor in the house?

From the instruction manual for the Memorex MPD8610 CD/MP3 player:

Snippet of instruction manual with contradictory information in adjoining paragraphs.

Really, now who could be confused by that?

(p.s.: If you’re wondering, it’s not included. For that mattter, it’s not provided, either.)

    There is a copy editor in the house, and she also noticed that the “p” in “CD player” is alternately lowercased and capitalized. Sheesh. Can I please get a job with this company?

    As long as we’re being ultrapicky, what’s the use of the quotation marks around “AA” (as in batteries)?
