  1. Hi, it's Justin Case. After another long hiatus, I'm back with an all new episode! Y'know what really grinds my gears? Newspaper articles. I hate how they stop and continue on another page in another section. I understand why they do it, but I think it's f*ckin' bullsh*t. I DON'T WANT TO CONTINUE ON D9! I WANT TO READ THE WHOLE THING RIGHT HERE IN ONE CONTINUOUS SECTION, GOD DAMMIT! Thanks for joining me. This has been What Really Grinds My Gears.
  2. What I mean by that is this. My Dad was talking about an interview call for a position, and one of the things the interviewer commented on was how he talked. He was told that the words he used were 'too big', that talking so intellectually made him seem intimidating, that he wad trying to create an air of superiority by sounding sophisticated. Like speaking somewhere between a professor and an attorney. This came to the point that most work places try to use language equal to an 8th grade education. I heard it's even lower, up to 6th grade. Apparently from what I was told, newspapers are made to be readable at a 6th grade level. My dad was basically told that he sounded too smart, using either too many words or too big of words. That talking in monosyllabic Twitter posts is more approved of. Is language and vocabulary, not just in the work place, but in school, in discussion, in public forums being too dumbed down? Are most people really at the level of needing to read and speak on an 6th grade level? Is being verbose and articulate in speech something to be looked down upon?
