Easy. If you act like a dumbass, I’m going to think you’re a dumbass. I don’t care about degrees and diplomas, if you can’t make the distinction between things like ‘your’ and ‘you’re’, or ‘there’, ‘their’ and ‘they’re’, I’m going to think you’re a dumbass. I hate it when people can’t spell ‘definitely’. When people ignore and refuse to retain the little things that we learned in grade school, it makes them look dumb.

I don’t judge intelligence by the degrees you have or grades you’ve received. I don’t care if you have a Master’s degree, if you can’t grasp the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’, you’ll look like an idiot. I mean, I graduated high school with a 2.6 and at 24 years old, I only have 39 college credits under my belt. Somehow I manage to be able to put together cohesive thoughts and sentences and not spell anything incorrectly. When I AM questioning the spelling of a word…. I LOOK IT UP. I know, it’s a ridiculous thought, right? To look up a word to be sure of its spelling instead of letting myself look like a dumbass on some public forum or social media outlet, outrageous.
I don’t know. I guess I just feel like if someone with a school career as average as mine can spell and have a firm grasp on grammar and common thought processes, then everyone else should be able to as well. I get very annoyed when people are so quick to publicize their ignorance with no care in the world.
