I GIVE UP

I have never had a job in my whole entire life that made me regret having a BA in English like this one does. When I was interviewed for this job, they said they wanted someone with solid editing skills. I thought that was me considering the degree I possess and the fact that I spent 3-4 years as a professional editor.

What it has really meant is that rather than accepting that I know fuck-all about the English language – including grammar and advanced communication skills – let’s argue about it.

I’m so sick of the bullshit. Don’t ask for someone who knows something if all you’re going to do is argue the point at every goddamn turn.
