I gotta admit, I'm a little surprised the same folks that are complaining here about someone gramma hasn't said boo about the abuse of the comma in the topic title.

FWIW it is not only people who do not know proper grammar. Add a lot of speech to text because folks are using devices without a keyboard.

While you are at it most of us older folks did not learn to type in school so we are not as competent on the keyboard as those who did. That puts us at the mercy of spell checkers that may or may not pick the correct word. Often trying to fix it is not worth the effort.

In other places spell checks are done at the end so hitting the replacement word often sends the message before we can make sure we did not fat finger the choice.

I was going to correct the title to proper grammar, but it's more ironic that I don't.

Things surely have changed over the years. The latest that bugs my wife and I is when you thank a waiter or someone helping you and their reply is "No problem." It would be nice to just hear some of the younger generation respond with your welcome. Every now and then we do and it gives us hope.

I must agree that as our language evolves - and it has been continuously evolving - that some of the grammar has resulted in changes I still have some problems accepting. The disappearance of whom and were, and the confusion of less and few come to mind.

But I am an old man, and when my generation disappears, these examples, and many others, will also disappear and be considered archaic. If you doubt that, reflect back upon your parents' or grandparents' vocabulary and speech patterns.

my concern is the lack of education of our youth. todays educators are lazy yet they want more pay. when i was in school, when we turned in our work we had to show on paper how we arrived at our answers. our math problems had to be worked out completely. we had to take notes no tape recorders. now the teachers allow tape recorders, calculators, and computers in the class, some schools even provide the tablets. when you go into a business now the cashier can't even give you change unless they see it on the display, if they had to figure it out in their heads they would be lost. well i could go on and on but the bottom line is i think our children should be taught how to use their brains before their taught about the newest technology.


ps and i know my grammer stinks but i'm 60 years old, retired, and i've already made my mark on the world so it does'nt matter

Proper grammar is like good personal grooming habits. You can ignore them if you wish, but don't be surprised when others form their own opinions.

What is your basis for this statement? What do you know about what a teacher's job entails? You said you are 60 years old. Does that mean you haven't been in a classroom for a while? If so, where do you get your information?

I retired from teaching 3 years ago at the age of 70. I know what a teacher has to do in the daily routine. I know about the extra hours before and after school to help students. I know about the hours spent at home grading papers, preparing lessons, etc.

You seem upset that students are using the tools of the day in their education. Why? Calculators? I learned to use a slide rule. But it was the calculator of the day, so I used a calculator in 1959. Computers? Why not? That's what the world uses today. We use the tools available. I use a cordless electric drill, not a brace and bit. I drive a car, not a horse and buggy.

Yes, the classroom is not the same as the one you attended. But the world these students will live in is not the one you that you have lived in either.
