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.

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".

Sorry, thank you.

And that red sox fan is the correct way to take criticism / correction.  Hmmm... is Jeders perhaps a Yankee fan?   >:D

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?

Give your apology a chance to filter down before going defensive. Not everyone has had a chance to read your apology post yet.

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.

OK, guys, ease up. He's not going to fix things overnight, and I've exchanged PMs with him about this issue.

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.

Enough dogpiling on the new guy here.  The point has been made numerous times and is abundantly clear.
