In a draft of a business document (in the United States) explaining an accounting process, I see the word "haphazardly" used where I think "randomly" might be more appropriate.
Here's an example: "We haphazardly selected 25 receipts generated in the month of July."
To me, "haphazardly" implies a degree of carelessness or even recklessness in the process, which is definitely not intended by the authors, who only wish to say that the receipts were selected at random.
Am I correct that "randomly" would be a better word? Or is "haphazardly" also OK in this context?
