Thanks for getting the joke! I get worried at times that I’m the only one who knows I’m kidding.
I’m a professor at the iCollege of the National Defense University and there is nothing worse than reading a paper that’s full of grammar issues. It takes forever sometimes to figure out what the student is even trying to say at times and that leads to some poor grades. I’m not sure whether it’s okay to judge someone on this, but I can guarantee you that people are judged by their ability to communicate. Why would anyone with a career take a chance on losing an opportunity because they don’t know the basic rules of grammar? It just doesn’t make sense and just between us, it isn’t that hard.
