Grammar deteriorating in the workplace
While our computer savvy goes up every year, our grammar in the workplace seems to be deteriorating.
Jeff Horwich: Finally: I got a kick out of the most popular item this week on the Wall Street Journal's web site: a column on our deteriorating grammar at the office. Employees are coming in with the ability to write a Tweet, but they can't form a grammatically correct sentence.
So, hey, it's Friday, let's have some fun: I put the situation into a limerick -- a condensed version of the conversation bosses are having around the country this week:
There's a problem for you and I, Bob --
And I ain't -- like -- some grammar snob...
Frankly, I could care less,
But there's clients to impress
So let's try to talk good on the job.
