Great LOR, poor form
« on: November 02, 2008, 08:06:49 PM »
What would you do if you knew a former employer would write a glowing recommendation letter but you also knew his/her grammar and spelling were terrible?

I would say this person leaves out a preposition, might use their for they're, uses the singular when the plural is required, etc. This person is very, very intelligent, but might put on two different shoes before going out because his/her mind is preoccupied with a solution to Laplace's equation. The details of grammar and spelling seem secondary the writing.
