Title: Joint training exersize with the U.S Army
Post by: red_sox_fan on August 02, 2012, 03:49:50 PM
Well me and the squad went down to St. Marrys, PA for training exersize. Let me tell you something we were out there for only 1 hour. When the army estimated that the training exersize would last for about 12 hours. we teamed up with the Army reserves. To look for a "down" pilot. The army was scouting a postion were there intel proposed that this was possibly the location of the pilot. They couldnt find the pilot. Well we sent one of our Cadets arimen basics up there as soon as he got up there he saw the pilot behind the tree! The army had no medics on seen or correct supplies (because they left in back in the HUV 2 miles back) so luckly are Cadet 2nd Lt. had supplies and things to transport him with. The army was embarrased because we were read our scores CAP scored much higher than are local U.S army reserve unit! Oh that was one awsome training exersize.  :)

Your post is so replete with spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors that I do not know where to begin.

Dude, we can hardly tell what your story (or any of your others posts) is even about because of your terrible grammar. Please go to your school administrators and demand to be put back in the third grade so that you can be retaught proper grammar and sentence structure.

Actually, behind our screens, we're all laughing at you. Why? Because someday you'll write something official using your terrible grammar, and you will fail miserably. Maybe it will be a school report, maybe a job application, maybe a college essay. But unless you learn the importance of grammar, the end result will be the same, your failure. So it's fine if you want to laugh at us for trying to impart some hard learned wisdom. Because you're the one who's going to reap what you sew. And with that said, I'm going to take Pylon's advice, "Stop Engaging Miserable Posters."

You know, it's a sad state of affairs when someone can graduate high school and go to college and not know how to use correct grammar. I've even seen this type of thing on news websites. It's sickening to me that I was forced to learn how to articulate myself and these yabbos are getting away with murdering the English language.

Don't type like you talk. Don't type like you text. Don't type out words that SOUND right. Find a fargin' dictionary or thesaurus (not a legendary dinosaur), find the fargin' word and SPELL IT CORRECTLY.

Here are some helpful hints:

Your=possessive form (your uniform is pretty sharp)
You're=a contraction of YOU ARE (You're pretty sharp)

Would've/could've/should've=would have/could have/should have. "Could of" is so wrong I can't even explain how wrong it is.

Our=collective form (Our unit is number one!)
are=verb (You are highly mistaken)

I, when used as the subject of a sentence or referring to one's self, is ALWAYS capitalized.

The use of periods and commas is highly encouraged to eliminate the dreaded run-on sentence.

Man, it seems that I am hammering on this, but if one...just one...follows this advice, I'll have lived a good life

Being a good speaker and reader has nothing to do with filling out reports and writing papers and articulating yourself in print. All the stuff you're going to have to do when IF you become a cadet officer. You will be expected...EXPECTED...to be able to write properly and use correct grammar and punctuation. Heck, to even get out of high school you'll have to be better than this.

What is really funny is that spelling and grammar were subjects in school that I struggled with and had to work very hard to be proficient with.  I always did decent in math, history, geography and science.  Yet these days I cannot believe the poor writing I see on a daily basis.  It permeates people's emails and web postings and I have even seen some really horrible resumes and cover letters when I have been a hiring manager.  It boggles my middle aged mind. 

I have also noted that most, if not all, of the people I know who do write poorly also suffer from poor reading comprehension skills and also tend to speak less proficiently than more proficient writers.  Based upon these personal observations, I tend to doubt anyone who is so substandard in writing yet claims to be either a good reader or a good speaker and I especially doubt it when they claim to be good at both.

Well, me and the squad and I [squad, the name the army uses for element or short for Squadron?] went down to St. MarrysSt. Marys, PA for a training exersize. Let me tell you something, we were out there for only 1 hour., Wwhen the army estimated that the training exersize would last for about 12 hours. wWe teamed up with the Army reserves. Tto look for a "downed" pilot. The army was scouting a postion where theire intel proposed that this was possibly the location of the pilot.suspected the pilot to be located. They couldn't find the pilot. Well, we sent one of our Cadets ariAirmen bBasics Question: Why are you putting C/ABs out into the field? up there. aAs soon as he got up there, he saw the pilot behind the tree! The army had no medics on seenscene or correct supplies (because they left in back in the HUVHUMMV or HUMMER 2 miles back). sSo luckily areour Cadet 2nd Lt. had supplies and things to transport him with. The army was embarrased because we were read our scores CAP scored much higher than areour local U.S army reserve unit! Oh, or ! that was one awesome training exersize.  :)

Now I am a bad speller.  I know that the comma kicks my butt nine out of ten times.  I know that sometimes what I want to say does not always get posted because I am simply not taking my time.  If this is the pattern you wish to contiune with here on CAPTALK, I will tell you that your message is going to get lost in the noise floor of your grammar.

You guys are all mad at me for bad spelling im sitting her laughing. Heres something you use when there bad spelling in a topic context clues.

No, we're not mad at you. I, personally, am mad at your English teacher in school for not explaining how important proper grammar is. You've been sucked into "street" and "text-ese" and it has no place in the real world. It may look "cool" or "dope" or "sick" to you, but to the rest of us who have bothered to learn something, you look like a fool.

That's the trouble with you younger folks. You're trying so hard to find an identity outside the societal norms that you let the basics and fundamentals slide. It's called laziness of the brain. You laugh now, but in ten to fifteen years when you're angry at the world because you can't find a good job because you can't fill out a resume or job application without someone laughing you out of their office, what will you do then?

End of life lesson. You won't learn from it anyway. You'll sit there and laugh at the old farts until it's too late.

reap what you sew.

Just to be helpful, the correct word is sow.

Reap: Harvest the crop from (a piece of land).
Sow: Plant (seed) by scattering it on or in the earth.

Sew: join, fasten, or repair (something) by making stitches with a needle and thread or a sewing machine: "she sewed the seams".

Young folks occasionally find out just how poor their communications skills are in relation to their peers when they hit college.

I have placed more than one Computer Science undergraduate on a "writing graduation hold" when they've turned in papers written on the fourth grade level.  That usually gets the attention of their English Department instructors, especially if they somehow passed one English course at the University.

No kidding. The high school I went to is considered on of the top 5 in the state, and in the top 100 nationally. When I took my English courses (those I didn't test out of) in college, I was amused about having a whole class (10 weeks + finals week), to write a TEN page paper. That is, until I had to peer-review some of my class mates. When a COLLEGE professor has to explain how to structure a paper, and the goal is to hit ONE whole page in a WEEK for ten weeks...We did that Junior year of high school in three weeks for our Junior year research paper.

Did I mention this is 10 double spaced pages?

There is no excuse for bad grammar and/bad spelling.  As the Controller/Human Resources Manager for a small company (108 employees), the first cut on any resume or job application is spelling and grammar.  Two errors and that resume never makes it past the next line.  Spelling, grammar, clean clothes, shinned shoes, etc. all go into creating that first impression.  That first impression decides who will and will not get a paycheck.
A young man may be the best speaker who ever lived, but if he cannot spell and his resume goes into the "not qualified-not considered" stack I will never hear him.

BTW, when you fang someone publicly, make sure your own ducks in a row. It should read shined shoes above. I don't know what shinned shoes are.
