    Thumbs up I don't like it either?


    Hi there!
    I am a student in Australia.
    I am quite interested in the field of grammar.
    However, my English Grammar is not good enough.
    I was looking a website which I can ask questions.
    Yeah. I can find some. But it looks like they just "copy and paste" the information.
    I need further explanation, not just some unprofessional and irresponsible response.
    Could someone answer my questions, please?

    I am finding the use of "either".
    I have one example.
    "Hey boss! I don't like the way you are doing." I said
    "I don't like yours either!" My boss replied

    Is it okay? I knew these should be other ways to use "either".
    How is it about?

    Raymond

    "Hey boss! I don't like the way you are doing." I said
    "I don't like yours either!" My boss replied
    I would change this:

    "Hey boss! I don't like your way of doing things," I said.
    "I don't like yours either!" My boss replied.

    The use of either is fine.

    I need further explanation, not just some unprofessional and irresponsible response.
    Starting off by insulting people is not a good way of getting them to help you.

    If you're planning to say "Hey boss. I don't like your way of doing things", I wouldn't bank on keeping your job for very long.
