It has worked flawlessly for the past 11 months. Now, I can print anything I don't need and nothing I do. To include my own paycheck.

Can't remember if I posted this or not, I searched and didn't find it...anyway, I can't stand when people use the phrase "should of." That's nonsense. It's "should have," and people only think it's "should of" because of a) the contraction "should've" and b) most people can't speak clearly. "Should have."

I say shouldda. But I'm an uptight new yorker. My friends in the south can't understand a damn word I say.

It's not "can't." It's "cannot." Also, it's not "didn't." It's "did not." Also, it's not "that's." It's "that is." Also, it's not "it's." It's "it is."

This is what you sound like, Commander Data. How can you be a cafeteria contraction user?

And come on: "should've" is practically the same thing as "they've." Certainly not high speech, but come on!

Though I do agree about "should of." Drives me nuts when people say that!

Well you do know why Yogi said that, right? And when I hear someone say that phrase I assume it refers to something that has happened over and over. Unless it's something I know hasn't.

samething goes for "and what not"..

why do people insist on using it as an ending for almost every sentence they say, and what not...

my pet peeves.

the Iowa Hawkeyes
people who send an e-mail and then visit your office to discuss the email they just sent.
hanger nipples.
people who try to sneak in a lane right before the exit. id rather crash into a drymounting guard rail then let them in.
virtually anyone in a lifted, giant truck that isnt a farmer or an alaskan.
frames that wont stay level.
drywall cracks.


so many more.

I always say, the same people you see in October, you'll see in March. This is not true of the interim months.
