“Either and or ” go together when it comes to suggesting affirmative choices. How about neither and nor? Neither and nor are to be used together when one relays information that is not true or has not yet been done.
Situation #1: Joey confidently answers the questions of the interviewer during the job interview
Interviewer: Tell me something interesting about yourself.
Joey: I’ve been in the marketing industry for 4 years. I have gained a lot of experience through communicating and working with foreign nationalities. As a digital marketer, I have completed 3 websites and made successful online ads.
Interviewer: Wow! That is impressive. Could you tell me about your weakness?
Joey: Sir, I had used neither my annual vacation leave nor had gone to the company-sponsored trips. I am working on these personal and professional shortcomings.
Interviewer: I totally agree with you, Joey. Take leave when you need it to nurture your marketing creativity.
Situation #2: Duke and Lily are listing the things they want to do before turning 30
Duke: Oh my gosh, Lily. Next year, both of us are turning 30. What are the things you want to do before turning 30?
Lily: I had gone neither bungee jumping nor solo traveling. Perhaps, I’m going to do these things within the year.
Duke: Those activities are extreme. Well for me, I had neither swam with sharks in an oceanarium nor joined TED Talk. I am looking forward to doing risky and promising things this year.
Lily: I’ll be really proud of you when you join Ted Talk.
Duke: Let’s do something different this year.
Lily: That’s a deal!~
