This company has a bank teller shop where all you have to do is make a teller transaction and report and its $15! The big bummer is there's a limit of one shop per day! Annoying! So I've found with other companies sometimes they're willing to budge on rules like that to get the jobs off their job borad. So I shoot the scheduler a message asking that here's the exact convo:
Me: If it's possible to forgo the one shop per day rule i can get many of these shops done for you guys this weekend
Scheduler's response (18 hours later): What locations would you like to do? I'd have to check with my manager on that.
Me (literally 5 minutes later): I could do [Insert 5 town names here]
Scheduler's response (3 minutes later): On what days? You can only do one shop per day.
where exactly did I lose this guy on what I was asking....
Maybe she didn't understand the definition of the word "forgo" ;-)
No, actually, he properly used "forgo".
"Forego" means to go before; forgo means to abstain from. Do without, sacrifice, give up. And so on.
I have had more than one editor kick it back to me, with the exact same complaint.
Eh old school thinking, my reports tell of my professionalism and work ethic . Schedulers know I've got their back when I can help out.
I think there should be a rule against criticizing spelling and grammar on the forum boards. If you really care about the individual and want to help, why not do it in a PM instead of embarrassing and belittling the person here?
I still maintain we should be communicating clearly. Posts with absolutely no punctuation and riddled with text speak can just be difficult to understand. On the other hand a few misspelled words, missing plurals, apostrophes, commas, misuse of their, there, they're, those should be filed under sh-t happens.
Unless of course it is an autocorrect that is just downright hilarious
personally, I don't make nearly the same amount of effort when typing here(or in most emails to schedulers) as opposed to when I do a report. the difference is, this is for pleasure/info/killing time, reports are a paid job. i'd hope schedulers would figure that already, maybe that's just me hoping they're psychic.
