Bad spelling

How fucking hard is it?

We as Australians have grown up in an English speaking country and gone through 12 plus years of schooling, yet some people still manage "2 spel like dis all da tym".

Are people lazy or just plain stupid? Don't get me wrong, we all make mistakes every now and then and I am both happy to turn a blind eye to an obvious error and willing to admit that I make mistakes myself. But fuck me a simple review of Facebook statuses shows that spelling is completely thrown out the window but at least 80% of people.

I don't care one iota if Facebook and Twitter are just social networking tools. To me they are a direct representation of how you present yourself to the world. So if you want to be seen as a moron that has absolutely no grasp on your native tongue, go ahead. Personally, I don't mind taking an extra 4 seconds to be correct and concise to show that my knuckles aren't still dragging on the ground!

It's not just Facebook though. I've seen people at work send invoices to clients that a five year old would snigger at. Have some fucking professionalism! Proof reading may take 5 minutes out of your day but it could stop your business looking like a complete and utter joke!

Really, if you're old enough to use a computer, you should be able to spell. If you think abbreviating everything to the point that I need a translator is cool, you need a firm punch to the jaw. And if you're just lazy, do us all a favour and turn on spell check.

Now, don't even get me started on commas and full stops...

USB internet

My god, what a waste of time and money. Slow, unreliable, costly pieces of shit.

I may as well go back 56kbps dial-up. At least then I may stay connected to the internet for more than 10 minutes without it dropping out like a Queensland Year 10 student. Wouldn't be paying $40 for a shitty 3gb of downloads either, which by the way is about 2 Youtube clips!

Today it took me an hour just to get online, let alone actually loading a fucking page. The quicker I get broadband on here the better... and not just because I miss excessive amounts of porn!

Commission based jobs with low retainers

Never work in sales. Period.

"Uncapped earning potential" is such a crock of fucking shit. Sure, if you want to eat, breathe and fucking sleep at work, you *may* earn a decent wage. But if your a normal person, you'll still end up working 60 hours a week for three-fifths of fuck all.

Claiming that you have the ability to earn unlimited amounts is just an excuse for certain companies to pay you a petty base wage of 30 grand a year (before tax!).

I'd probably earn more working part-time at Maccas...
