This is not how you write School Bus ad. Not mine. Don't laugh...at me

"1986 crown school bus, forty footer bus, 90. Passages bus,95% on Tires, tendon wheel in back, new battery, 271 Detroit diesel engine, engine in middle of the bus,air brakes, no rust, automatic transmission, spare tire, over head luggage in side of bus, huge Department in the back of the bus, lots of spare parts for the bus, this bus will go 500.000 miles or more,this is a great bus, for a church bus, or rv. Conversion,"

Person that wrote this ad is just plain ignant as Chris Rock would say. Let's play a game and have members post what they find wrong. Don't put more than one thing in your post and give other people chance to find them.

271 is a 2 cylinder with 71 cuin per hole. Bit small for a bus.

Other then 271, I really do not see a problem with it. I hope that everything someone says is going to have the grammer police picking it apart. I am not here to judge or be judged, nor is my grammer that good at times.

Any poking fun by me is 100% in good faith. I've been the guy speaking the dominant language as a second language. I've also lost more points in English class to spare punctuation than anyone on this forum. I apologize if it seemed rude in any way.

I know the seller of this bus. She is a super hot buxom Swedish supermodel. I don't care if she can speak English or not. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. If I had a problem with the English, I'd have a problem with everybody around me every single day, all day long.

I have enough experience marking student papers when I was a grad student to know that young people nowadays think differently about narrative construction than most older people. And their punctuation skills are often underdeveloped.

Of course I am not talking about dropouts here, but rather about the ones who've managed to get into university. This was 12 to 14 years ago and I see no reason to expect things to have improved. I think this is due to our sound bite culture, and the way we constantly watch TV and videos, which effectively immerses us in soundbites and influences the tone and style of our self-narratives. I also think the situation will inevitably get worse.

Yes, I agree. You said it so well. Kudos. FWIW ... acronyms in text will also make reading and writing more difficult in the future.

When I see such flagrant broken English, I think of the Nigerian prince scams of years past.
Often times now they've morphed into email phishing bots, only to flood your inbox with garbage or further corrupt intentions from untouchable offshore locations…?
