You know what!?!?!?!?! MTO is so trifling. Y'all can't make an exception to your typical laziness and spell-check/proofread an "in memoriam" story? That's like misspelling the name on someone's birthday cake, wedding invitation, or headstone. Just tacky! I know this ain't the Wall Street Journal but good grief. Have a little pride!
Who the heck is hiring, training, and firing these folks Fred? I don't get it. Either you're too cheap, too lazy, or too foolish to care about your credibility but assuming it's because you're cheap, I'll offer this bit of training â€œgratisâ€ or â€œpro bonoâ€! (Translation for the ratchet folks: gratis means free and pro bono is Latin for â€œfor the public goodâ€). Let's get started......
Re-read the caption in that last picture. Take you're time Bonquisha. You too Becky. We'll wait. We know y'all are kind of slow and clearly you've had NO training or professional development since joining MTO. While we pity you, we don't blame you for that. Fred has to own that one. Read it one more time. Do you see the problem?
He's big as two men but last I checked, there is only one fat f*ck rapper/once-upon-a-time correctional officer named Rick Ross aka Ricky Rozay. I think you meant to refer to that wack azz flunkie calling himself â€œRockoâ€. The sentence should read as follows: â€œ He helped put on Rocko, Future, and Rick Ross!â€ Still a bit hood-ish but hey, it is grammatically correct.
See how good it feels when you put a bit of pride into your work? I know these lame rappers are coming out a dime a dozen but here's a good life lesson for you. We do our best for ourselves as much as we do it for others. It's kinda like dressing up for church. Sure, the church says â€œcome as you areâ€ but you show respect , humility, integrity, and CLASS when you go above and beyond because you want to, not because you have to. So using the church example, while hubby/son may skip the tie on casual service, they won't be wearing dusty, broke-down, flip flops either! Are you starting to understand? No? Here's a more self-serving reason. Once you show mastery of remedial English, other sites might take it seriously when you finish a story with that lame threat about other news outlets' being required to reference MTO if they break the same earth-shattering story. Heaven forbid a credible news source such as USA Today (and they're teetering too) or JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association), tell us what Rhianna had for breakfast without letting their readers know that they picked that story up via one of MTO's â€œWorld-Wade -Ecsclusiveâ€ (<<<see that) exclusive stories that ya'll get from those super secret, very credible, insider, snitches.â€ You know how y'all do!
Better yet, here's a suggestion. Fred, can you find the receipt for this raggedy azz censorship program y'all are running? I know you do. You may be hard on the eyes but I don't doubt your intellect. I know you're a well-educated, once-upon-a-time, Wall Street man. Ivy-league MBA, right? Or was it law? Either way, I'm sure you know all about keeping receipts for tax write offs! I know this lesson hurts but I swear I'm trying to help you improve. It's not about throwing shade. I mean heck, I am visiting the site, right? Eventually Fred will take heed of this constant feedback and he'll offer ya'll some education/coaching once you've been hired.
You're in a tough spot Freddy. I'm sure you thought to yourself, â€œwhy bust my azz making tons of money on Wall Street when I can sit on my azz, hire a couple of high-school flunkies, dish up a daily dose of degradation and make twice as much moolah. Man (as in human) has had to fight that moral battle since the beginning of time. Some choose to rise above. Others choose the poison. So what that your wealth comes from the degradation of everything pure, civil, decent, honest, ethical, fair, or in the case of MTO- black (black women, black children, natural black hair, whatever). I get it! What do the kids say these days â€œGet it how you live it!â€. You're just doing you.
Now for you Freddy....
Once you return this hot/bootleg/five-finger discounted censoring program use that money to invest in some remedial training for your VERY-remedial staff. If we're lucky, you'll have enough left over to spring for a copy of â€œEnglish for Dummiesâ€, â€œEditing for Dummiesâ€ or even one of those old Mavis Beacon computer/typewriter programs. I mean the stories on MTO are usually about a paragraph or two so not only can your folks not master the King's English; one could assume they're also having difficulty typing those 5 characters per minute(Translation for the ratchet: Each letter/number/symbol is called a character.) Check Barnes & Noble, Sam's Club, or Target. No time? No worries! While you're jet-setting the globe with money you've made spitting on your past, shading your present, and disabling our kid's future, you can surely stop at the â€œHudson Newsâ€ store. You know the place. It's in most major airports. They sell gum, magazines, books, tampons, aspirin, and tourist crap at ridiculous prices. Those books are very popular. Apparently basic, hood, flunkies and trailer park trash thrives on those things. Gotta get that GED somehow. Don't you Bonquiesha? Cosign Becky? #eachoneteachone
