Salutations are mandatory... repeat... mandatory.
Get a fucking life.
I hadn't even noticed the 7K.
In the annals of history this one ranks right up there with...
*let me get back to ya on this one*
The shrinkwrapping of CDs? Still a proud accomplishment even if it does annoy the heck outta most people?
Always knew you were a chatterbox.
It takes a lot of typing to try and teach Gonz a damn thing.
What he sai...
Oh, wait... umm... never mind.
What a profound statement and sound advice, were did you get that from?
Jsut something I've heard over the years.
Save the effort, he will never learn.
What is it with you and the 'jsut' thing?
That a birth defect or something?
Just the fingers. I touch type, so the fingers are already moving for the next letter before the last one is struck. That particular combination just happens to match my fastest finger against my slowest and it's always a loosing proposition.
I still do the teh thing for the same reason. I spent a lot of time and effort trying to overcome but it still gets me about 10% of the time. Being a little anal about shit like that, I correct it more often than not.
Interestingly, I don't generally do it on a typewriter.
Oddly enough, the last year or so, whenever I have to capitalize the letter M, the following letter is invariable capitalized as well. OK, so it's only 90 percent of the time. It's still annoying. Home computer, work computer, laptop... it doesn't matter.
I tend to doing a little slaughterhouse typing these days as well since I'm getting used to a new keyboard. The placement is a few mm off, the wrist rest is different, and the depth stroke is about half... not to mention that I'm trying to do it over the top of a cat half the time. It makes me look like a drunk KGB agent.
There are many things you look like... drunk KGB agent is not one of them.
I always wonder... If I were a cat, would I understand how helpful the cat thinks it's being? I suspect the truth is a lot closer to "This is where I'll lay to cause the greatest amount of annoyance."
Separate names with a comma.
