Elyz87562yI've never heard of anyone who cares about that kind of stuff. Plenty of my coworkers and the clients at work spell like shit but that doesn't make me take them less seriously. If you can still understand what they're trying to convey, it's a non-issue. Seems like a "I don't understand the technical stuff so I'm gonna point out what I do know" kind of management bs.
Nanos106142y> are people really that bad they judge based
> on spellings?
We call those assholes. :-)
Not just spelling either, if they can't get you for that, (Because you have learned to use a spell checker..) they will get you on grammar !
Now I use a grammar checker..
Then, if that is perfect, they will start on your use of punctuation..
For example, when you type:
Do you leave a space before the ! to make it more readable ?
Some say yes, some say no..
And finally, after all that, if your English is perfect, they will call you xenophobic..
eg. some folk go out of their way to find fault no matter what you do.
Probably just means they hate you and are looking for something to pin on you..
As such, you might want to make sure you keep spelling something wrong, so they only focus on that and not find something worse to complain about !
Also.. its a form of passive aggression, they will hope you will get angry and then make things worse for yourself..
kleopi9352yA friend got hired in a company even though he called the female recruiter
Dear Mr. <Name>
I guess if you don't have 10 mistakes in your signature people just have a laugh and continue
I heavily judge people making mistakes if French or English is their native language, except when it's a typo. But yeah, if I were a recruiter that would definitely impact my opinion.
mundo0349632yThe last resort of a stupid person that has nothing else to add to look smart is always criticising fiscals attributes when in person and spelling when over the internet.
Really it just mean they have nothing bad to say, and they think of themselves a smart because of it.
In this case, nothing else was being discussed so just take it as constructive feedback, say thanks and confirm the fix.
But note that when discussing something entirely different and spelling comes up you have won the discussion.

matste7022yI associate spelling mistakes with bad coders. Anecdotal evidence, but too strong to ignore. Sloppy writing feels similar to not doing self-review before pushing.
user0011072yCan you imagine how much free time that manager has that she noticed that kind of stuff? She either had your email opened for a whole day just to seem like she is working or she really hates you and went looking for a problem, either way trash person, she should have sent you an email to correct that just out of courtesy and go to your manager with that kind of a bitch attitude
My 2 cents...
