Can’t read? Can’t write? I’ve got the job for you!

If you can read this, then you’re overqualified for a job at Yahoo! Shine. Perhaps you know someone who is reading- and writing-impaired who needs a job.

If they don’t know if Internet is a proper noun and how many hyphens belong in 83-year-old, this might be the perfect situation, because this article’s writer doesn’t know either:

Knowledge of grammar is optional. The ability to match a subject and verb, and to distinguish between over and more than aren’t necessary:

The writer demonstrates that typing ability isn’t a requirement, either. And if you think this is right, you’re hired!

Wa-wa-wa wait! There’s more evidence that this writer has just the right qualifications. Did she really, really write this?

“She sails from restaurants”??? This is what the quote (which the writer included in the article) actually said: 

The author can’t write — and can’t read. I think that makes her perfect for Yahoo!.

    Andy,
    Stop reading Shine? But it’s so instructive. It’s the perfect site for illustrating what not to do. A gold mine of errors insulting to its readers. And it’s fun.
