    Default "Fairylord" and "I", I am Fairylord

    Dear Sir and Madam, Teachers,

    I have new question, discovered by Sir Barb_D during conversation/replies in another thread entitled "Bachelor Degree OR Bachelor's Degree"


    I will quote the relevant statement for easy reference by readers of this thread.


    Following 3 posts, you would found those highlighted parts shows that I use "Fairylord" to referring myself. I was using "Fairylord" in stead of "I".

    hmmm.....How shame I am, if telling my interviewee with wrong English. Sure get fired!

    How about, bachelor degree OR bachelor's degree?


    Does "B" and "b" make any different?

    Did you mean why I stated out like third person?

    If I would like to tell the interviewee that I have a bachelor's degree in property management, isn't it should be sound in that way?

    When you talk about yourself, it's more common to use "I."

    I was wondering - this is normal.
    Barb_D was wondering - this is not as common.

    I get what Barb_D meant. I presented in that way because I thought that was the polite way to talk with others.

    Is that a wrong English or just not common?


    Please advise in advance.
