      Sadly, another nail in the coffin for our rich language, put about by the same people who have difficulty capitalising the perpendicular pronoun and knowing when to use there and their, your and you're, etc etc!

      Is that all you want from life, just to 'get by'?

      I've interviewed dozens like you for a job and there's always someone else who's a cut above. Guess what, he's the one who gets the job!

      Sharpen up laddie! Education is way to go!

      although there is a flipside, my wife was unemployed for 20 months and time and again she didn't get a job as she was "too highly eductaed" (good degree in Biology) and she would be "too expensive to pay" because of it.

      So education is the way to go, just need employers who will employ who think that and not anybody "just to get by".

      When I was selecting potential employees, those who couldn't read, write and express themselves clearly didn't even get considered for interview. The current "it doesn't matter whether you can spell correctly or use correct grammar provided that you can express your ideas" doesn't cut any ice; without correct spelling and grammar you CANNOT express yourself clearly and unambiguously.

      And your wireless keyboard seems to be missing a full stop key and a Shift/Caps Lock key, as well as a temperamental apostrophe key.

      You need a new keyboard.
