As for the numbers thing...yes, i`ve been told many times by teachers that numbers should be spelled out, but they usually left it at numbers under 20. Idk. But unless it`s an academic text or a novel, writing "22 year old" is completely acceptable. And preferable, even.
Would it be Errands and without the apostrophe?
and isn`t it `running errands` not `running Aarons`
-Spell out numbers one through nine-Write out numbers 10 and up in Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, etc.)-ALWAYS use Arabic numerals for ages and percentages
So, in conclusion, since she is 22 in this context is an age, she should write it as-is. Even if it wasn`t, it is grammatically correct because it is over 10.
Where you might be mistaken, yourneighbor, is that you spell out a number if it comes first in a sentence. For example:
Thirty people went to my party this Saturday.This Saturday, 30 people attended my party.
In a sentence, all numbers should be in the same form:
There were 15 dogs, 5 cats, and 2 chickens.There were fifteen dogs, five cats, and two chickens.
NOT: There were 15 dogs, five cats, and two chickens.
Your school, however, might have different expectations in relation to papers.

Numbers below 100 are supposed to be spelled out?? WTF?? Why does the US school system keep creating grammar (I`ll say it nicely) Nazis?
Bit of a predictable comment there apermal. Could see that coming yesterday.
I wouldn`t trust someone with such bad spelling/grammer with my kids or pets.
Do people not proofread anymore?!
Practical solutions for everday problems
Ok, wow, could`ve been funnier
"Act like im your girlfriend""Help level your wow account to 80"idk
Incorrect spelling"For a small fee you name it and all do it!"
Correct spelling"For a small fee, you name it and I will do it!"
Btw, I`m french."Pour une petite somme, vous le dite et je le ferais!"
(not really at the being offended part)
Captain Obvious to the rescue, da da da daaa! What would we do without you, Captain Obvious?
A Stupid Idiot, that`s what kind!
Especially if you make it SEXUAL!HAHA!
"You name it and ALL do it"
Maybe she`s esl?
Though I probably would have been the jack ass to add in blow jobs after seeing her bad grammar on something that is supposed to look professional.
"all do it!"
Not someone I would let babysit my kids.
