Lunch or Job?

When is a role not a roll?

I’m seeing this so often at the moment and it’s getting annoying!

A “roll” is something you have for lunch or breakfast as in a “bacon roll” or a “ham roll” but a job is a “role”.

I see this on CVs that cover the whole spectrum of job roles, whether it’s an office junior or even a main board director, and it smacks of poor attention to detail.

You can’t rely on spell checkers as they will not pick this up – it’s not a spelling mistake, it’s just a mistake.

Please, for the sake of my sanity…
