I don't mean to be mean, but this phrase from a very recent job posting on Proz.com looked very funny to me (I capitalized the funny part):

"Please send us a budget and STANDART RATS as well as a CV."

The quote was worth looking at even because of this...

Have a good day!

RATS May 5, 2010

Matbe RATS was an acronym. That does not make it less funny, of course

They probably meant RATE, and ended up misspelling it as RATS. Letters E and S are very close to each other on the keyboard.
