    When I see errors like that I suspect English is not their native language. It annoys me more to see typos when I read the news, especially when it's in the title. Journalists should know better and they, or someone else, should check their work. CNN is one of the worst for that.

    Getting emails like that from upper management is even more maddening.

    You're just being sellfish. Stop it or we'll call you a fishmonger.

    Huh? That's standard language for CL and Facebook Marketplace in these here parts. All native English speakers, if you want to call it that. At least I can understand what the person is trying to say with "sell". It's when it's a bunch of terse misspelled words with no punctuation that are red flags for me.

    Here it's all just hillbilly text speak. I can almost guarantee that.

    fender gitars 4sell 200 no trade maybe trade 4whlr want nice truck wat you got no email thkns

    I kid you not.

    But the icing on the cake is that it will be a squier.

    There not really to blame. English is to confusing to ever be fully understood. Even if a honest effort is applied by the student, maybe they’re school don’t put a emphasis on the basics any more. :rolleyes:

    Your guys's snobbishness on grammar is unattractive.
