    corporate curmudgeons who know German?

    Hope you are better at German than your posts indicate.
    Just sold again and made enough to live of of for about 6 Mo. Going to stay away from MCY awhile. Want to see qtr. esults.
    Also when the wanna be managers start tying to be language students it must mean they are seeking a foreign job or they are expecting a take over by a foreign Co.

    This company has terrible employer, employee relations. Now these corporate curmudgeons will accuse me of being an employee. However, if I was, I would'nt be on this board now. Unless I am in my office whith access to the internet.

    • So many English useage errors!

      "Hope you..." To be correct that shoould be 'Hope you...

      "than your posts indicate" Posts can not indicate. Writing in posts can but not posts.

      "Just sold ..." To be correct that should be 'Just sold...

      "to live of of for" What does that mean?

      "Also when the wanna be managers start tying to be language students it must mean they are seeking a foreign job or they are expecting a take over by a foreign Co." Too many error in grammar here to list!!!

      "employer, employee relations" To be correct that should be "employer-employee relationships"

      "tying " Another one!

      "I would'nt " That is incorrect too!

      "esults." Do you mean "results"?

      "Also when the wanna be" Two errors here. "Also, when the wannabe..."



      "Going to..." Using a verb phrase to begin a sentence is incorrect. "I am going to..." is correct.


      "Want to ..." Wrong again.

      "office whith " with?

      God, I hope you are not a Mercury Employee. Your use of English is terrible. And language is a reflection of how one thinks. Your thinking is not good, based on your use of English!

    • The correct grammer is ' if I WERE (TWICE) As far as me using German ; it comes from being stationed there for 9+ years not from taking a course in the language. You obviously neglected to take one in English grammer. Why did you insert a period after 'now' and begin 'unless' with a U instead of u? By the by it's wouldn't, not would'nt. That's 4 errors in your native (I assume) tongue in a short message. Not to mention the word "WHITH. If you would be so kind as to tell me the error(s) I made in German, I would appreciate the munificence of your expertise.
