Hmmm...

First line of e-mail from my 'acting' section manager:
"The Monday Morning Safety Meetings will be attended by myself and Jon Fournet our 5130 Section Manager."

Better:
Jon Fournet, our 5130 Section Manager, and I will attend the Monday Morning Safety Meetings.

The Microsoft Word grammar checker likes active voice and, of course, 'myself' never does anything.
