Seriously. He sends email messages like this: Every Word Is Capitalized. This Started After His Supervisor Told Him He Needs To Use Punctuation In Emails And Text Messages. It's maddening!

I just typed an email to one of the managers suggesting that we send him to a class to learn basic grammar. But is this too much? Should I just ignore it and continue to simply laugh about his emails behind his back with fellow co-workers? I work in the food industry and this guy is in stores fighting for shelf space every day and isn't expected to be a genius when it comes to writing. BUT he still needs to communicate with his co-workers and business associates. Not sure if I should just vent personally and not say anything professionally... I know other people notice it, I think they just ignore it too.
tigerblinds:

my professional advice is to just make fun of him behind his back.

this.
nickg:

are you unable to understand what he means because the words have capital letters? if your first "sample" sentence is anything like the messages you are getting from your co worker, it would seem that he/she is not actually illiterate. i think laughing behind his/her back is one (lame) thing, and going to your supervisor makes you look like a tattle tail and asshole. mainly like you just feel like picking on/embarrassing someone. the other people who ignore it are being grown ups.
nickg:

or, tattle tale. whatever. i think you knew what i meant. by the way i have not used a captial letter in this post so hopefully you can read it alright.
Razor A Go Go:

I was in graduate school for writing, and evidently so many students' papers were terrible that they had to hire a separate fucking writing coach to teach them basic grammar, organizational skills, etc. It was at first voluntary, then a semester or two later, they started singling people out to take it. By the time I had come back from my leave of absence, it was mandatory for all first year students. Unbelievable.

I'm a good righter.
bradx:

i agree with nickg.
bradx:

"Seriously" is not a sentence. Also, you started two sentences with "but", and used "just" four times in one paragraph.
Mark Beef:

Leave her alone, Brad. She can't help it if she is illiterate. (Fucking royal dummy. What a tard, am I right, guys?).
Thee Gilded Chimera:

Fuck. I wish I worked with illiterates. At one of my jobs the fucking supervisors don't even know when and when not to use apostrophes.

At the other job, there are a couple of people who know twelve words of English at most. It's a constant game of charades. I amuse myself by drinking water until my stomach swells up to the size of a medicine ball. Then I sneak up behind them, pull my shirt up and rub it on them. Whether they like it or not. That's what they get.

Coo-ool!
tigerblinds:

C Lotta, I think he is writing like that to get under your skin. I also think you two should just hook up already, because I'm sensing some serious sexual tension.

I think anyone posting a message with this many grammatical errors needs to shut the fuck up.
