So I’ve figured out why Calibri is pretty much my least favorite font ever!
I was typing a draft of an email at work the other day. On the computers there, Microsoft Word’s settings haven’t been changed from their defaults; as such, things are automatically typed up in Calibri.
Gross, I know.
Anyway. Typing a draft of an email. I highlighted a phrase to italicize it and noticed something interesting:
Notice anything? I mean, aside from the italic-ness. Look again:
Mr. High and Mighty Calibri thinks it’s okay to change the lowercase g and lowercase a from double-story to single-story (actual terms) when italicizing.
Oh silly little arrogant fartface font. I knew there was a reason I didn’t like you, apart from your attempted overthrow of the Times New Roman dynasty upon the arrival of Word 2007 and all its tab-happy obnoxiousness.
Screw you! Times New Roman forever!
