The Department of Education is responsible for corrupting the language and corresponding thinking of generations.
I said at a former employer: "Words have specific meaning. Who told you otherwise, and how did they make themselves understood?" (It was an attempt at humor; there is truth in humor.)
If we cannot communicate effectively, then the work won't get done efficiently. It wasn't worth the frustration of working there, so I moved on.
My earliest remembered lesson was about proper pronunciation. "You can call it that if you like, but nobody will understand you." Thanks, Dad!
I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
