Job listing includes five stages of life for a copy editor

From Poynter:
The Crimson White, a student paper at the University of Alabama, is looking for a new copy editor. John Davis, the paper’s chief copy editor, posted a call for candidates that includes the typical qualifications, such as being a “grammar nerd” and having “at least a cursory knowledge of the Associated Press Stylebook.”

But in an effort to present a true picture of the job, Davis goes on to present his “five stages of life as a copy editor.” They are as hilarious as they are (mostly) true.
