He said he would trade a 1972 wheel Hosre tractor with no motor, but could have one with a PTO, that would do do something if it had a motor, he needs ALOT more than a chipping hammer. There was a guy down here selling a dog on Craigslist that belonged to his daughter and his english was even worse. The reason he was selling the dog was that his daughter was going off to college. I told him take down the ad, she wont be there a couple of months before they figure out she cant read or write.

With due respect to Mr Pond , maybe this one does not need to be saved . Maybe a ice thaw on a water body should claim this one  :worshippy1:   :worshippy1:   :rolling:  :rocker2:

I wonder how much he saves by not using punctuation. I might try that.

I have a couple of people who regularly email me for technical help that use no puncutation, no capital letters, and have trouble spelling the word "cat", I really feel for them, but it's very challenging trying to understand the problem

I hear you, translating some of this stuff can be harder than doing the crossword in the paper.

I read some of my posts here and think, "I wonder if I am the only one who understands what I am trying to describe here?"

A place I used to work had a foreman that couldn't pronounce or spell a three lettered word.  The company decided everyone that worked there should either have a high school diploma or GED so they sent him to GED class.  When that didn't work out the company decided they would just "grandfather" him in.

That sounds like a clear demonstration of the Peter Principle. The Theory that Managers are promoted till they reach their level of incompetence.  I'm not making that up, there is a book caled "The Peter Principle" that clearly demonstrates it, that was out in the 70's.
