Grammarly: I will speak simply but fervently.  We all make spelling and grammar mistakes, especially those of us that have to write emails, blogs, messages, newsletters and online entries all day long. Nonetheless, I am exhausted from trying to read business communication since it is clear that most of us have lost our ability to produce written communication without glaring mistakes in words and meanings.

After reviewing over 150 job applications recently, I have even more discomfort.  Add that to trying to decipher client messages in order to serve them rapidly and properly.
