Climbing the corporate radio ladder.

For those of you who aren't aware, I currently work in the radio industry.

One thing that's true about the vast majority of the radio folks that I've encountered is that they have no sense of grammar or wordsmanship whatsoever.

This is apparently also true for the radio folks who edit and write industry-related bulletins and websites.

The above could have been stated so much better had the writer written: "**** worked his way up from a part-time position four years ago." Or (not as eloquently written, but still not retarded-sounding): "**** worked his way up from being a part-timer four years ago."

But the way it's worded now makes it sound like an actual part-timer, someone other than him, helped him work his way up the radio ladder. And yeah, the radio industry's pretty screwy, but really--I don't think it's that screwy.
