Do You Need an Epipen?

Marketing guy: If 20 characters is the limit for a line, why is it wrapping?
Patient web developer: I used a fake string and we changed the font since then — some letters are wider than others, so I have some work to do to get it to fit.
Marketing guy: Hmmm… I like it saying ‘System Requirements’ versus just ‘Requirements.’
Patient web developer: … How many characters is in ‘System Requirements’?
Marketing guy: Nineteen characters, including the blank space between the words.
Patient web developer: Right.
Marketing guy: So, how much would that jack with things to be able to fit 19 characters on a line?
Patient web developer: Dude, c’mon. If 20 fits, then 19 will fit.
Marketing guy: That seems like some advanced math to me.
Patient web developer: Yeah, sorry. Didn’t mean to get all math-y on you.
