just my two cents here. I'm only 22 years old, and the first brand new vehicle i had ever been in or on was my 2012 250. My parents did help me with my first truck, a 1989 Toyota Extra cab four wheel drive. I gave that truck hell and when I tore it up I fixed it. My dad would always help me work on it but he never paid for any of the repairs. I said that to say this. I learned a long time ago that when you have to work long hours and every weekend to pay for what you have, you appreciate it a lot more. Once I realized how much money they had already put out for the past 16 years of my life raising me, I realized that since I was capable of working and earning money that I should. I maintained a B average through high school and as I paid my way through college, I maintained a A average every semester. Now, I've got a good job, beautiful wife and family, a roof over my head, motorcycles, trucks, cars, so on and so forth. I'm not bragging my any means just stating that I got all of this because I learned when I was 16 that if I wanted something I could have it, through hard work and dedication. I always had support from my parents without having my hand in their back pocket and I will always respect them because they made me pay my way.
As for the grammar issue, vocabulary is very important in a job interview. If you can type with correct grammar then you can speak correct grammar and show that you are educated which will back up your straight A's on your report card. The straight A's will not get you a job but showing you are educated and you earned those A's will.
