    I'm proud to come from working class immigrants. My mother worked as a seamstress in Redfern and cut through the oval every day when she got off the train to get to the factory. My father and grandfather established 3 businesses in our home town, accumulated a large property portfolio including commercial buildings (a bank was OUR tenant, not the other way around) and donated so much to charity we now have streets and parks in Queensland bearing our surname. I've never had too much trouble finding work even in Covid compared to many others whom I wish well to, won a council award when I had my own business after being open for just 3 months, beating out 9 other businesses and am now finding I spend my days assisting others at work who have degrees but don't have experience or knowledge. I left school at 15 because my father died from long term injuries and illness stemming back from his days in WWII ensuring that people like you could have a better life. I still got into the top 10% in the state in English in year 10 despite not coming from an English speaking background. (No Qld jokes about folks are dumb where I come from..)

    You can tell a lot about a person by the way they speak about others.

      Oh you are going to love this story...I had to correct the spelling of someone at work who is going to be a dentist..he kept spelling rapper as something else..minus one of the letters as in the surname of a former Dragons great. He really thought he was talking about rappers..

        But I'm particularly happy for our 3 debutants, and over the moon for Jake, it's been a long time coming...

              Never was any good at school as you can probably tell by my spelling and grammar but after I left school sought help with my maths and now I am probably at uni level.still can't spell for a bugger . Started my own businesses after working for a bloke that I now consider a mentor .Employed 5 people at the peak which I know isn't a huge business but in our small town it help . Out of that we bought a small farm and eventually semi retired nearly 20 years ago and now work weekends and a Monday in a hardware store . Not Bunnings .point to all that is even without a uni education or even not passing year 10 I and anyone else can do well without being the most educated person on the block if you are just willing to have ago and not expect everything for nothing

                Grammar is not a sign of whether or not you have intellect I left school at 15 but always passed maths English history geography The reason I rarely use it on here is I spent 15 years working for a company where we had to write down our analysis briefly in minimal time frame At 1st I used correct grammar and punctuation only to be told you are wasting your time doing so Reasoning being these are extra key strokes and we can read what you are saying without them It is now habit on social media and the only times I use it now is if I’m sending business emails or when someone online pulls me up on it The latter doesn’t last long as it is usually said by someone whose only comeback is pointing out grammatical errors
                This is a chance to accelerate our pre pandemic efforts to re imagine economic systems that actually address issues like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.

                    I think grammar and punctuation is very important. It makes a dumb bastard like me look somewhat intellectual.

                    Well, maybe not!
                    Drink some hand sanitizer and inject some disinfectant. Problem solved!
