If English...

is your first language and you were raised/taught to speak and write properly, why do you butcher the language horribly to the point no one can understand you. 

I understand English is one of the hardest languages to learn as a second or third so this is for those who grew up learning English as a first language. 

Does anyone who knows you call you out on your horrible grammar and spelling? I understand everyone misspells I do it as well. It happens. 

And why use "text talk" on important documents, IE: resumes etc?


anyone else bothered by this or other grammar/speaking/writing issues?

It bothers me, but I live in a redneck town, so I'm used to it. That helps me get over it on here.

Seriously, if you went to some of the schools I went to growing up, you would understand why.
