How much does a comma cost?

Anyone who has watched Wheel of Fortune knows that the long running show places a monetary value on letters of the alphabet.  Ever wonder how much certain punctuation marks would cost.  How about $10,000,000.00 for a comma!  In this article http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/lack-of-oxford-comma-costs-maine-company-millions-in-overtime-dispute/ar-BBycPZW?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartanntp the court ruled in favor of employees and against their employer due to a missing comma.  That comma cost the employer $10,000,000.00.

Clearly, this is not a divorce or family law case.  So why did I create this post? As an explanation to my clients.  I know you often wonder why I spend so much time reviewing, revising, and proofreading documents for your case before having you sign them. This article shows why.

There is a cost to doing things the right way.  The linked article shows the costs of not making sure things are done right the first time.
