Re: random pics from your real life (NOT internet gifs)
Because understanding punctuation and style is an important part of the job, and it's disheartening to see that somebody charged with passing that along to the next generation either doesn't care enough or doesn't know enough to hold his or herself to the standards they should. It's a detriment to all of us if the next generation reads and writes poorly. We're the ones who have to read them, hire them, trust them in an emergency. There's not a lot of spare time to wait for the only other guy in the elevator to sound out the written emergency instructions when the fallen ceiling panel's already knocked the literate one unconscious and the cable's snapping, filament by filament, taking us ever closer to the first floor's fiery inferno. People will die.
