Cheating cheater

Today, my boss's son is training to take over my job as head translator, after having convinced his dad that he's fluent in Spanish, and that my skills suck. I soon walked in on him using Google Translate on a legal document. My boss refuses to believe me. FML

lol, yoda translator

Can just let he take job without fight. Win comes when you have new better job him and dad make bad business with together.

Well the as a translator you can get a good job wherever they need them. So good luck job hunting and find one and leave your boss and his son to figure out what is going on.

5- .......That's the joke.

And your comment looks like it got hidden:(

Well hopefully you will still be employed so when he screws up you will be there to laugh your ass off

Pickles taste terrible.

His secret will be known...if still not believed take a pic of him in the act of using google...

Or just let time take care of that problem on it's own: If Google translate is the best he can do, especially on legal documents, it'll be obvious enough before long and your boss will come out looking like the stupid ass for One, not listening to you, and Two, firing his own son that he himself hired. Of course, that'd be just too perfect to happen that way. You may be unemployed and after a thousand fuck ups, the boss may "promote" his son to a "different yet equal" job opening that just appeared. :p Truly a sad story.....

Unfortunately OP will probably be fired before his boss figures out how much damage the son has done.

But then eventually, the boss will be fired for having approved a Google-translated document... Don't wait for something to happen, OP, just find another job, let karma take care of the assholes... Good luck.

It's not about whether the kid can speak Spanish or not. The father probably knows his kid can't speak Spanish. The father probably knows what he did was wrong and doesn't care. People do rotten things all the time. Don't assume your boss has a conscience, he probably doesn't. Hope you get through this. I've been there. GL

I hope the boss realizes his mistake soon.

Did he hire him because he was his son or because he actually though he was fluent in Spanish? Nepotism is illegal.

nepotism is illegal in government... not private business.

The boss won't care. It's his son.

initiate spy cam!

At least it wasn't Bing.

bless you, frozen92.

Bing is the bomb and you know it.

I Binged/banged? an essay once. never again

Here, take this award for being awesome. Bing sucks. I have no idea why my friends use it...

The only people who use Bing still use IE

If you see him do it again film him and show your boss

Its all politics and family right there OP. If you get lucky and he does it again, hopefully your boss will witness and make a decision from there

Why would he use google translate for anything, it's terrible, he should by a book and learn, op I'm sorry there are idiots like this in the world you should try to catch him in the act and get proof unless your boss is a moron too then your screwed

12- Lol, and here, judging by your grammar and spelling, I was going to ask You if you were using Google translate yourself! ;) (Teasing, teasing, no hate here, nothing but love....) ;)

I would suggest a book on run-on sentences for you.

23- We all have our quirks. Run-on sentences is definitely mine. Point for you, Sir. ;)

23- Yeah, no one really told me where commas go, either that or I didn't listen

#36 - I usually just put commas where every I think they need to be, most of the time, but then there are the occasional instances like this, where a comma should be used in excess, just to make a point. Although, I am not sure how many is too many, even in a situation like this.

51: Commas aren't necessarily used to make a point so much as to use an appositive phrase, an interrupting definition, in a sentence. An interrupting definition being used to clarify something the middle of a sentence. (I used one in the first sentence!) You can tell if that's what it is by seeing if the sentence makes sense without it. They are used for emphasis occasionally, but it's often the former. This is of course on top of the usual uses such as seperating clauses and listing nouns.

How about some periods too?

Periods suck. Commas RULE! :D

Time to invest in a spy cam, OP.

I'm pretty sure that that's illegal.

How did he convince him without proof?

14- Son- "Hey dad, gimmie a job." Dad- "Can you speak Spanish?" Son- "Fuck ya. Como Stan.....?" Dad- ".....Seems legit." :p
