Hello everyone, I would like to ask if this sentence is correct or not?
I HATE TO CRUNCH NUMBERS SO THAT I HIRE AN ACCOUNTANT
My guess is we should use "SO" not "SO THAT" in this sentence.
Correct me if I am wrong.
Please enlighten me with the correct usage "so" and "so that".
Thank you and I hope to hear from anyone soon.
I HATE TO CRUNCH NUMBERS, SO I HIRED AN ACCOUNTANT
"So" is a coordinating conjunction showing a cause and effect.
It rained, so we canceled the picnic.
I hurt my back, so I hired someone to shovel the driveway.
I hate do to my own accounting work, so I hired an accountant.
