If the attorney had written this in real understandable English, someone would have questioned whether he was worth the $400 or $500 or whatever hourly rate he was billing.  If they can't understand it, they figure he knows something that they don't.

Ha ha.. yupp. Here's another gem filled with redundancy:

'NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:'

In consideration of the err.. consideration?? Therefore, foregoing,..follows??

BTW, this document is straight from the corporate offices of a major automotive OE..

Nicholas courses are mean and evil. I love them. :-)

Not trying to pick on you, Shane, but I hate when people can't spell names. "Jim Nance" is another one. My own is a third. Particularly when my name, or Nicklaus's name, or whomever's is right there where you can see it.

C'mon man! :-D One of the best ever deserves to have his name spelled properly!

This one isn't from TST, but from an article on MyGolfSpy (which does have poor writing in general, but this was particularly awful):

Quote

Sufficed to say our recent test of Costco’s Kirkland Signature Golf Ball has raised product awareness.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

I think he meant 'gimp' meter like from Pulp Fiction.

Did you mean historic sites?

Did you mean Emma?

Did you mean International Women's Day?

Very unique, how can something be very unique?

I'll just stop at this point.

Don't forget the tense shift either ... she "visited" ... "and dropping" ... ;)

(Not to mention that this isn't a Women's Day thing for her - she does that all the time):beer:

Please stop writing "suppose to" instead of "supposed to" and "use to" instead of "used to" .Thanks. ;-)

Tense used to be "a thing", you know.

In the race of life, always back self-interest. At least you know it's trying.

You don't expect him to be able to write proper "English" do you?

I noticed grammatical errors in his Twitter timeline, sometimes you can tell mistakes are typos or no time to type, they don't seem to be of that variety, I think he skipped out on English class.

    • Day 114 (07 Oct 22) - Continued setup drill routine (stance, grip, rotation into top of backswing, slo-mo thru impact).  
    • Science has come a long way since the 1940s.
    • Here are some thoughts in no particular order: Golf trips 2x a year - I have no problem with this. For a couple who has no kids in the house what is the big deal (unless we are talking 2 week trips to the UK)? If you guys are retired, aren't you taking trips together? If not, start. You worked all your life to have the time and money so enjoy it while you still have it.  Golf all day and drinking is the norm - that is a red flag. I don't mean to judge, but this seems excessive if its the routine. Most retired guys I know play 2-3 times a week and this would never fly health or wife-wise. These guys I am talking about don't rush either, they show up, warm up, play, have lunch, etc.  It is an experience, not a hurry up and get home (like when I was young with kids) rush round.  His shopping is his me time - give him the grocery list and put that me time to use. It sounds like there is some room for more WE time with all the hobbies.  You live in a new community - you really need to meet some people and get some activities going for your own self development. If you feel like you are waiting around for hubs, well that might be a decision point. My suggestion is seek some healthy balance or re-evaluate the situation. I would suggest the communication route first, seeing a therapist, but probably not taking it to an online forum.  I am not sure what else to say here. My wife and I work full-time (kids grown) and we don't have these issues because we spend plenty of time doing everything else together. She does have a professional life that she enjoys and has plenty of her own goals to accomplish. When I went on my golf trip without her, she told me to have fun and not to worry, she had plenty to catch up on and enjoyed not having to entertain me the whole extended weekend (3.5 days - 6 rounds). She has expressed that when I do retire, she needs me to stay busy for her sanity! I guess that means more golf, part-time job, volunteering, etc. Currently I play about twice a week but if I was retired I would play consistently 3 times a week and still have plenty of time to be a wonderful husband - forty extra hours is a lot of time to fill! 
    • LIV has hit some marks. They are playing the correct sport for OWGR points. Clubs and balls and all that Not that these guys were all that interesting in interviews before LIV, but it certainly hasn’t gotten any better.
