Functional Illiteracy

Wow. Okay, so it would appear that people who do dumb things also have only the foggiest grasp of the English language. The Sympatico Site of the Day was this:


First of all, a couple of things were truly stupid, but most were just stupidly lame. However, I don't suggest you read the first page's worth of stories to see which of them are worth reading. Instead, read them as a study in fractured grammar. If this is how the average person comes out of High School in the English-speaking world, then maybe the Chinese really should take over the planet. Regardless, I can definitely see why so many American companies are outsourcing their Technical Support Services to India!

Gah! It gives me the shivers just thinking about how bad this is. What the heck is the world coming too? And hey, does this rant make me look old?
