Has anything ever made you so mad!!!!!!! - Page 4

You have learned a lesson, rtopforever. A poorly written letter, memo, report will not be perceived as coming from a knowledgeable, intelligent source. Sorry, but that's a fact. If you want your ideas to be respected present them well.

Oh, it's grammar, by the way. I had to look it up to be sure, and that's not the only word in this post that I checked for spelling. Why bother? Because I don't want look stupid.

a lesson

Ok learned a lesson I'll give you that, however I was unaware that my ideas we're on trial. Had I known this was such an issue I would have smiply kept my ideas to myself. I guess I'll just keep on skiing.

Ideas we're on trial? What does that mean?

Spelling and what not

If I were to be writing a professional memo(which believe it or not I have in my day) I would feel the need to impress those who were reading the memo. This forum in my mind is a place where everyone can express themselves freely. I just find it petty to pick apart everyones spelling. Half the posts I read have horrible spelling mistakes or do not make gramatical sense. The validity of my ideas should have nothing to do with my spelling thats all I'm saying.

It's kind of late kiddo. Don't you have school tomorrow?

"...The validity of my ideas should have nothing to do with my spelling..."

It doesn't but the perception of your ideas' validity might. That's all I'M saying. I didn't really focus on the writing in your post until others pointed out how bad it was. It's no big deal to me.

Yes yes i do have school tommorrow. Maybe they can teach me to write good and the what knot. Seriously I will use this situation in my communications class. I have just realized that we have hijacked this thread. I'm sorry bigguy. I hold no grudges to anyone here. We are after all ski geeks. If we want to discuss this further I suggest we start our own thread. Peace

You're right, I did miss the earlier mispelling. In fairness, that person is not the one that started this thread. Also, in the intention of full disclosure, look at the original spelling, then look at yours.
Are you kidding me? Go get a hobby, please.

You got me on capitalization, good on you. Somebody needs to clue them in...can you imagine what their resumes will look like if they type it themselves?

I wasn't an honner role student or in advanced placement classes, so let me slide on a single letter typo, ok? :

What does that mean?! I think YOU should get a hobby. I don't have the time, or the inclination to check my posts for grammar. I do however have the time to revel in the irony of a person making gramatical errors in nearly every post they make while lecturing others on using proper grammar....

we're not writing term papers here

let's stay on topic, this poor kid has to go to the Vinny Yard next summa, for heavens sake !
Saw this the other day on a much cooler forum: I almost got fired once in High School for correcting the grammar and spelling on all corporate memos and notices we received. The sad part was, it went through both the VP and his secretary...
hey kid, I know how you can get up to wachoo and ski on wednesday nights for $15 on a bus from Boston, send me a PM if ya want more details.
btw, the Vineyard sucks now.It's infested with rich idiots - I'd stay home and throw a giant bash while your parents are away.: right Brock ??

WHOA!! We can all see that he's a good kid just going through the teenage stuff. In our hearts we want to help, NOT GET HIM DISOWNED!!
(I've been in on a couple of those "------- folks are gone for the weekend and ---------. None of them ended pretty!! Nothing like police cars in the drive way to get the neighbors attention.)

But, if he does decide to throw a bash we'll just publish his address over on TGR.

Not to keep at this, but you asked me to explain myself.

Do you see anyone.........anyone at all.......using AOL-ese here? No one does and there's a reason. Taylormatt hit on it and telerod15 made it more clear. You end up appearing stupid, which I'm sure you're not. When you mispelled basic words like 'making', it's so awful it's embarassing to read!

Standing ovation!!! We're not so casual here that we can't take the time to write with intelligence and care.:
