    In this day of twitter and OMG abbreviations, isn’t everybody so used to incomplete sentences and bad grammar that it doesn’t matter?

Or put poor grammar in a letter to a customer and they’ll be looking for a new supplier.

    Herb Kelleher, former CEO of Southwest Airlines, once said, “When customers see coffee stains on our pull-down trays, they think we don’t do our engine maintenance right.” Show lack of competence in one skill and people will question your competence in every other skill.
