19, There are different kinds of 8 years old. Some people (nowadays they're rare, but still) learn to read at 3, read a lot, and by the age of 8 have decent intuitive understanding of grammar rules.

59 - I said at the level of an eight year old. An eight year old like one you described is above that level by virtue of reading/writing ability, not limited to it just because they're eight.

That's probably not true. Yes, his boss might get pissed, but I have a feeling he won't fire the guy. Plus OP probably apologized right away once he knew it was his bosses.

I'm your boss's document he asked you to review. I'm full of incomplete sentences, grammer misteaks, and run-on sentences. Clearly, I can't be written by the person who supervises you and makes more money than you. You should totally insult my composition and the person who wrote it. If you've got cut rate intelligence you could be dealing with this mess yourself. Avoid mayhem like me and save face by switching to constructive criticism.

Well you were just being honest, so it isn't really your fault.
Even though honestly is the best policy but you never know how this one will work out for you.
Hope for the best.

He wasn't being honest, he was being a bitch. When you're asked to review a text, review the damn text, not the person who wrote it. In that situation, that's a golden rule. It's very easy to state your opinion without insulting anyone. OP definitely deserved that one in my opinion.

He didn't review the person who wrote about. He simply stated that it was written at an 8th grade level. Which is not that bad actually, it's only 4 years from College.

Sounds like the boss' FML "I was confident about my document so I asked a co worker to read it, he said it sounded like an 8 year old wrote it, FML" lol
