I've e mailed a primary school and a couple of secondaries in Brisbane with some general enquiries. Got prompt replies back, which is great. But I'm a little concerned, as the responses were littered with spelling mistakes, typos and grammatical errors. One was from an admin assistant, so I can forgive that. But the other was from the deputy head. I am a bit of a pedant about these things, but nonetheless. Should I be worried? Especially as these are schools we'd already researched as having excellent reputations Really hope I havn't made any spelling mistakes on this post.
This could only be me, BUT. Have you since becoming a member of PIO found your typing speed getting quicker? I used to be about 40/50 words a minute, now since a member of PIO I am up to about 60 on an average. Only problem is this. My speed has only gone up to this count when I read a post that really gets on my goat and feel the need to reply quickly. You know, the old red mist comes down, veins sticking out from your neck, snapping and bitching at anyone in the house that dares to interrupt you, beads of sweat oozing from every pore on your body, a migraine coming on, and for all intents and purposes you become a humbug to all those around you.:biglaugh: My kids often say to their mum,' Is dad posting again, and if so is he annoyed'. They can normally tell if I am getting wound up as I snarl and bark, 'I'm just replying to a post, lleeeeaaaavvvvveeeeeeee it' (In a typical Ray Winstone kinda way).:embarrassed: Only problem is this. After you have finished and read the post back that you realise because of your temper and eagerness to get the post written it then takes spell check a further fifteen minutes to check your post and correct it because it looks like ancient arabic.:jiggy: And then because spell check has taken so long you find the post you wanted to reply to has been deleted or you read it completely wrong in the first place. A couple of aspirin later and several drinks normally calm me down though. My mrs (God bless her) wipes away the sweat from my brow, and her own indomitable way says: 'GET A LIFE YOU T..T'.:biglaugh: This is tongue in cheek by the way, well nearly.:cool: Cheers Tony
