What level education did you reach?

I am amazed by the poor writing I read here and on other sites. It's either "too" instead of "to" for the entire post, or "u" and "2" and other shortcuts. I have a hard time reading some of the posts I see and wonder if I bother responding if the OP will be able to understand my reply..

so..what level of education did you receive?

And why isn't there an Education category to post this in?

  • I just realized how snobby that sounded, and I want to apologize. It just gets to me sometime when it takes me 10 minutes to read a post because of all the poor grammar, spelling and shortcuts.

  • I don't use shortcuts for the most part, maybe cuz instead of because or LOL or btw or whatever...

    I have a Bachelors, and thinking about going for Masters. Accounting.

  • I have five university degrees including a Master's in Education and sometimes I use shortcuts bc I'm tired. It's good to learn how to decipher these posts that are in abbreviated form if you receive txt msgs. I have nine grandkids and have to be able to understand what they are coding to me!

  • I don't get annoyed by the shortcuts because most of the time they're easy to understand it's definately the poor spelling and grammar that drive me nuts!

    I started hanging out with the wrong crowd, got into drugs in my Senior year and ended up failing high school. I was so ashamed of myself! I cried for months after that! Then when I got pregnant with my dd 2 years later I felt that I NEEDED to get my diploma for her so I went and took my GED test when I was 8 months pregnant, all 3 tests in one day (imagine sitting that long 8 months was difficult but well worth it) I found out 2 weeks before she was born that I had passed! That was one of my greatest accomplishments!

  • I have a year of college and my husband has a double masters. It's not like I'm writing a report for school or work. I do get really sloppy on here.
