Why can't they get it right??

My reference was an old joke about people getting degrees in Philosophy.  No jobs in that area so they wind up working at "Mickey D's".

 

You must, at one time or another, been an advocate of Dale Carnegie.  I took a class in "salemaship" when I was working on my BSB and his 'How to Win Friends and Influence People' was required reading.

Digesting these comments from my perspective, Leno and a wide spectrum, from PHD's to "people who practice funny walks for money" are all held to perfecting details to those of us old farts whom hold details quite dearly. 2018 is the 50th year that I have done my career work for pay. Over those years my interactions can be grouped with two distinct personalities, those who understand at a conceptual level and those who perceive details. Genetics or experience or punishment for a former life have given me both attributes, which makes me a threat or a real PIA, depending on our relationship. I am definitely unemployable and had to create my own job, and done well at finding others of like ilk to assist me. I expect a lot from everyone... and myself.

 

I sign documents with a signature; B. E. Daily. Not long ago I signed a waiver of some sort for a prescription at the doctor's office. Before I got home my cell phone was ringing. When I answered the voice told me they needed my signature, not the frequency of the medication----- be daily? Leno hires writers to think that stuff up. But that's a doctor's office, merely conceptual. Details are handled by a specialist.

 

To those working toward their BS, MA, and PHD today, the educational requirement of those in charge of the environment of your higher learning classrooms has increased dramatically. Poor ventilation, mold, and general low maintenance in classrooms has been proven to cause cognitive damage. Those controlling your environment may have spent four or more years in the same room you occupy. There could be a cycle there.

 

Details, details, is breathing a detail? I don't know. I am still pondering "O" rings on a frosty morning.

Concur. English grammar is easy for less than one tenth of one percent of those that write the English language. Please know the customers’ names were spelled right in letters that I mailed or carried by hand.( If I have the apostrophe correctly placed is that plural possessive?)??✒️?

 

 

...customers'  names....??
