Unbelievable.  How do such obvious grammatical errors get through?

well, I circled it after a couple of my coworkers failed to notice.  One failed to notice after I circled it, but he works in marketing.

Leave him there. It's punishment enough.

Apparently its a monster of a service.

I have been called a lot of things in the past but never that.

You ARE your resume; perhaps you need to face the fact that you need to improve.  

Micheal Jackson had a song to that effect, didn't he?

RE: help with you're resume

It was "The Man in the Mirror."

Great song!

RE: help with you're resume

A little OT pehaps, but...

Our plant HR lady brought me an envelope the other day, on the outside was a letter saying that a student was conducting a survey about job satisfacton as coursework. The student turned out to be the HR lady.

On reading the letter and survey form I COULDN'T HELP but notice some spelling and grammar errors, so...

I marked it up, also noting on the form "Please carefully review all communications". Put it in the envelope and returned it as directed.

Great fun. Wish I had scanned it though....

Regards,

Mike

Hey, if the spell checker says it's ok then that's good enough.
As an example my next-in-command commented that some work was completed in a 'Timely Manor'. Surely an apt name for a retirement home?

yeah, well, at least the most experienced engineers worked on the project.
 

RE: help with you're resume

Is 'Your fired' also incorrect?  Should it be 'You're fired'?

RE: help with you're resume

(OP)
uh, that was the point.
 

RE: help with you're resume

It's Monday.  Wasn't awake yet.

RE: help with you're resume

My boss just sent an e-mail saying that the accessories were payed for with the same account as the prime component.  That doesn't pass spell-check.

RE: help with you're resume

I've always wondered what the red and green lines were on all of my documents.  I guess my system is stuck in "Christmas" theme.

RE: help with you're resume

"payed" or "paid"?

RE: help with you're resume

ewh--

your just being harsh with people who don't always spell and grammer check there posts.  Its not uncommon, you know...

RE: help with you're resume

(OP)
I kinda thought that "payed" was the mistake you were expected to find.
 

RE: help with you're resume

I was just wondering if that was what spell check didn't like.

RE: help with you're resume

I'm confused.  Isn't "payed" the only thing spelled incorrectly in that post?
