Has anyone noticed that corporate drones based in America never use standard formal English? He is an example from FB.

 

Alex is a perfect example of 'the problem' ...you cannot argue with him, you cannot debate, he will cherry pick data that he prefers and is the epitome of an ACC Denier (I wonder why he even is on this site, as perhaps a Mormon or JW site would be more suited.....coz uno...guuurd...man dominion over everything blah blah...gurrrd...free will etc etc etc coz guuurd gave us earth to wreck as we see fit blah blah ad nauseum) ....I am not even gonna bother replying or debating, as it is quite clear that his mind is Set.

Whenever I read drones these days I auto think about the flying remote control helicopter things.

For these colours we will fight!
Red, white, black will crush the enemy

So what's your point on the English and syntax in the OP?

It's common business jargon. Do what?

You sound bitter about people who are employed in administration or managerial capacities in s corporate environment.

Why?

What do you do for a living?

I have a guess.

I agree with Valkyrie.   This post is highly reminiscent of the Sci Fi Doomsday scenario in which corporate raiders (of merged or junk-bond traded or nefariously acquired companies) become raiders of private bank accounts

and me

I still use the personal pronoun for people

never say 'phase' for 'faze'

never describe a grizzly event when there are no bears present (grisly event if it's just a charnel house)

and NEVER say the reason is because (by cause of)

still use the verb 'to affect' since 'to impact' reminds me of the sound made when a side of beef is whacked with a baseball bat (or cricket bat - if you're from Ceylon)

 

Swedes speak the best English, with Icelanders a close second - third - Germans . . .Canadians - 7th lol

 

Only a handful of people can still handle formal English - know whatta mean guv innit
