I can't fucking STAND English class. Why in the fuck should I have to waste my time writing essays about shit that is COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT TO ANYTHING IN MY LIFE!? I'm going to be a veterinarian, so I shouldn't have to spend 3 or 4 hours reading pointless stories that have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on my personal life!

OH BUT WAIT!!! I can think of the perfect scenario of when I'll need to write an essay!!11111

"Hmm... looks like this horse got into some poison. Instead of getting out a stomach tube and treating him, I think I'll waste my time writing a fucking paper about some dumbass story!!!1111 THAT'LL SAVE HIS LIFE FOR SURE !!!!!1111"

I can understand having to take English in high school, to develop grammatical skills and learn how to communicate thoughts articulately. However, the shit I'm doing in college level English right now is completely pointless!

WHY THE FUCK DOES THIS EVEN HAVE TO BE A REQUIRED CLASS!?!? :mad:

Ok, you may not need this course. However, a lot of people in this country are fucking morons, and they do. This is why English is a required course in school.

The government feels you should have a well-rounded education. Thus, making you a well-rounded citizen. It sucks, but there is nothing you can do about it. :(

You'd be surprised how many college students are clueless about grammar and punctuation. If you already know what you're doing, it should be an easy A. Most college English is targeted towards proper punctuation, and semantical writing skills. Learning proper English keeps you from looking like an idiot later in life. :thumbsup:

I swear, I get so many emails from coworkers that look like they were written by a 14 year old, it's pathetic. It's fucking horrible when people are so uneducated they can't even send a WORK email with correct grammar.

I think that the problem when people are typing on a computer is that they get to far ahead of themselfs and also I have noticed that people start to get dislexic when they are typing on a subject that "excites" them and then they start to forget to use simple grammer skills. Its not that people don't know how to use grammer they just get off on tantrums and forget to put it in.

I could have very easily tested out of this class had I not been so damn busy at the time. To think, a simple hour long test could have spared me several hours of frustration and annoyance. :banghead:
Well, I suppose it doesn't really matter anyway. The quarter is already more than half way over, so it'll be through soon enough.

Sort of similar to people using run-on sentences without any sort of punctuation. This, ferengi, is why you need your college level English class. :thumbsup:

Funny you mention that, given your English skills.


Typing too fast shouldn't be an excuse, there are spell checkers in almost every email client out there. I'm mostly talking about punctuation though, as it's harder to err on that from a typo. I don't have that problem, and I type at 90 WPM.

The fact is, these people don't have a firm enough grasp on the English language to tell when something looks wrong. Bitch about grammar nazis all you want, fact is it looks bad in a corporate, or formal setting.

English classes are crucial. I don't think there is enough emphasis on it. e.g.: When I worked a Brigade TOC (Tactical Operations Center) I had to read several documents handed down from the chain of command each day. The writers' poor grammar and lack of editing made a lot of people's jobs very difficult. No writing mother fuckers aren't just a nuisance, they are a threat to national security!

School doesn't prepare you for life at all.

It didn't for me, anyway.

Everyone has to go through English at least once in their lives, so stop bitching.
