So this young millennial is appointed the new director of social media at the company in this commercial and it seems that she has no sense of grammar or spelling!!  BUT.....she has this program called "Grammarly" that corrects her "mistakes" (I call it ignorance) and ends the commercial by telling her boss she's had a great day.  Awesome!  That's exactly how I'm sure companies operate today....hiring people that don't have the skills, but hoping for the best.  I'd have a great day too if I didn't have to actually do my job.

The dumbing down of America.  Disapprove

Stupid product.
But then, when 30% of "Americans" can only speak spanish, maybe there's a chasm for this?

Per Wikipedia, the founders of Grammarly are Alex Shevchenko and Max Lytvyn.  I wonder if Grammarly corrects misspellings of those names.
 
Hah!  Right now, spellcheck has Grammarly and Lytvyn underlined in red.  How the hell did it know that Shevchenko was spelled correctly?

She got the job because she puts out for the boss.
