    Issues in the office

    Someone at my office is insisting I can use this sentence - "Thank you for your generous donation of the golf hats and shirts. As well as the golf towels, for our silent auction". Nothing I say will convince this person that this is totally wrong. Please help me explain to this person how and why it is wrong. Thank You!

    Re: Issues in the office

    So this person doesn't see that a period there makes no sense at all? And that what follows the period is a bizarre little setence fragment that doesn't even make sense as a literay device?

    He was doing great right up until the period, but can he explain why he didn't want to make it one (correct) sentence? Could you ask him where the verb is in the second "sentence"?
