I am sorry to have to do this, but as you were disrespectful to the
Grammar Police, I had to report your message for adjudication.

Line 2:  Use "each other" to refer to two people. Use "one another" to
refer to two or more people.
Line 3: Should be full stop after 'work', not a comma.
Line 3:  'assuming' is often confused with 'presuming'.  "Assume"
means "to accept without proof". "Presume" means "to accept before
proof is established". You might have got away with it this time, but
we have our eye on you now.
Lines 1,5: We'll let you get away with "doesn't" and "don't" this
time, but watch it!
