Fewer/Less

Use fewer for a smaller number of individual things; use less for a smaller quantity of one thing. The less money Mr. Flanders spends, the fewer bills he gets. When you're down to one, use less: After Charlotte's wedding, Lady Lucas had one less problem. In addition, use less than (not fewer than) with percentages and fractions: Less than a third of the graduates showed up for the reunion. Use less than for quantities of time and money, too: He built the bookcase in less than two weeks and for less than thirty dollars. Finally, use less than when measuring distance (less than five miles), weight (less than 150 pounds), temperature (less than 30 degrees), speed (less than 50 miles an hour), and so on.

un-Patriciaed - "less songs" is not correct here and it should say "fewer songs"? (since it is a smaller number of individual things)

I passed my exam, too, which kinda blows my mind.

this Patricia O'Conner might be something I could use as well, I think, is it called "Woe is I"?

Get a load of this fatherfucker of a sentence. It's full of errors.

The Company strives to insure that employees who terminate employment are treated
consistently and fair. We request that employees give a two week notice, at a minimum. The Office manager should conduct a exit interview (see Att. 2, exit interview questionnaire (Form HR-20)). The employee should return items such as: keys, credit cards, company equipment or supplies; ect., that belongs to the company.

i know the parentheses are off and also the punctuation around "supplies: etc.," i just have to find the answers in CMoS. but what the fuck is "Att. 2,"? should it be abbreviated? if not what is the word? should it be capitalized?

fuck

oh shit you caught a bunch of other ones. thanks ptune.

so you'd spell out attachment? lowercase first letter? this is part of a notice, it is the first item of a list of rules for employess, probably out of a handbook or something.

I'd spell it out but not sure if lowercase, this shit should be consistent. say if a file exists with a header that says "Attachment 2", it would make sense to go with

Quote:
see Attachment 2
but they go straight to "exit interview questionnaire" which is all lowercase, but "Form" is not.

yea but not outside of terms and conditions, if this is a manual or guideline for employees, it wouldn't make any sense to capitalize it.

Hereinafter, I shall strive to fart and shall refrain from thriving to fart. The hitherto failed attempts to fart were misguided.

(is that the correct usage of hitherto?)

I had mixed up thrive and strive in a fuzzyesque brain failure
"as a company, we thrive to fart" - pretty sure you cannot thrive to fart, but strive to fart, yes, yes you can.


I bet this is extremely helpful for took's exam, you are welcome!
