    What earthly point is there in simply downvoting something without leaving any comment? – WS2 Aug 28 '14 at 21:17

    Absolutely none. One of my pet hates on Ask Ubuntu... Okay, so it isn't an amazing question, but there isn't anything wrong. +1 – Tim Aug 28 '14 at 21:17
  • Possibly the downvote is for the question being "off-topic", it is a "proof reading" question, and the OP doesn't appear to be interested in the slightest as to why the phrase "doesn't work". A comment explaining that would have been courteous, and might have lead to a better question. – Mari-Lou A Aug 28 '14 at 21:29

Not really.

"for our friendship"

doesn't work, although I can't put my finger on what is wrong.

Much simpler, and correct:

At the end of September, we will have been friends for a year
