If any of you read Gawker, you've probably noticed that they're enjoying the hell out of mocking American Apparel for their silly dressing/grooming requirements. I find it ironic that while folks in management at AA act like elitist jerks, not letting any "uglies" work for them (and then making the non-uglies who are okayed to work for them conform to ridiculous clothing/grooming standards), they're not paying attention to how ugly their grammar and spelling skills are.
While perusing some of the AA documents Gawker's posted on its website, I've seen a lot of crappy spelling and grammar. Here's just one print-screened example--a homonym error followed a few paragraphs later by a completely stupid misspelling of Doc Martens.
Also, on a non-grammar-related note, what the hell is AA's obsession with white Keds? I'm so glad I have never wanted to work at an AA--any fashion-oriented place that would approve of me wearing white Keds is not somewhere I'd feel comfortable working (unless they make white Keds stilettos that I don't know about...?).
