I always am amazed that people with no comprehension of proper written English can do well in business.

At an old job, I had to create documentation on a piece of software that I was supposed to train others on. The documentation had to be vetted by a documentation specialist. Said "specialist" changed some of my finely wrought prose into ungrammatical silliness. I complained to my boss. His response? "I'm not too good with grammar, so if that's how she wants to do it, let's do it."

Suffice it to say, when it came time to train these employees on how to use the software, their first question was "Who the hell wrote this stuff? It makes no sense."
