I manage a company YouTube channel so I have to go on there semi-frequently for work.

More a rhetorical question, but why so many ads for Grammarly? What kind of word processing programs are people using that don't have a grammar and spell check?

Planned to go for drinks with a few friends before I decided to get back in to the gym. 3 days in to getting fit and i'm defeating the purpose by going for pints. No I can't hear or see anyone say "just don't go for pints", sorry can't see you write that.

I was at a Diabetes meeting yesterday... talk after talk about how we're all failing at life.

Well.. I thought this, and to my right was a PhD student who is also a professional body builder, and to my left a Professor who's actual title is "Professor of Physical Actvity" (who is also an ultra marathon runner).
To I decided it was just embarrassing to be me among these people, so I would definitely go for a run yesterday (Scrapped, because the meeting finished at 8pm and didn't supply food... so instead of a run I ate a healthy dinner, and then a whole bag of dorritos.

Yeah judging from your picture, you can do that way way more often than I can. I will be back in the gym the next day sweating the beer out though. That's the one thing I promised myself. If I drink, I gotta punish myself in the gym the next day. :(

It's not, but if I can work off something of the calories from drinking it has to be done. It can also act as a deterrent to wanting to drink in the first place. Fuzzy logic I know.

I used to think the same, but I've just had a Professor come up to me "Are you dyslexic?"
"...yes... " (oh no) "How did you know"
"It's very obvious. Get Grammarly. "

There’s a little informal get together in ten minutes to discuss this if you’re around?
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Sorry I have a meeting where my team have to create a document where we promise each other to show up to our daily meeting, show each other respect etc. This actually happened. :(

That’d never work on BCB.

I'd try the Review tab in Word first and do a spelling and grammar check. I don't know how Grammarly can be astoundingly more intuitive. Words's aren't at all, by the way.

There are also free readability tools available online.

"Has" to create. "Team" is a collective noun, which may be part of your problem.

I never aspired to be management material and part of that was self preservation and part of it was knowing myself and my strengths. I watched two of my managers get let go due to restructuring, one of them a year or two from retirement. So I stayed in direct patient care because hospitals need people who actually take care of the sick. Besides, for at least my last ten years I made more money than my manager and I was still hourly so I got paid X 1 1/2 for overtime whereas managers were salaried and they always worked overtime. The point of all this is that I was able to avoid meetings except for the radiation safety meeting which was held quarterly so I could handle four meetings a year and they never went over an hour and were frequently less and unlike a lot of managerial type meetings we actually accomplished important things.

That very much depends on whether you speak English like a native.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
