Now when my money comes through I can sit back and do nothing while all of the Plebes here at TR are slaving their guts out and laugh. Though I did at least think that the people in the USA could spell much better than what is posted above not to mention use correct Grammar or at the very least use Capitals to start sentences and for names of things like Countries and People.

Actually I got a bit of a shock with this it's been over 2 years since I've got any Spam now and I'm not sure how this clown got my E-Mail Address. Most likely the ISP's been Cracked yet again. But I'll have to send them my main Bank Account Details as I just love to watch the Ballance grow. :^0

edited to add What can I saw I just love this bit united state of america so what happened to the rest of the states did they get flooded by all the global warming and no longer exist?

I think that there might be a good living to be made

by neilb@uk In reply to I is rich

In offering to correct the speeling, and, grammar for these guys.

I am willing to subcontract the placement of commas if I can find someone who might meet my exacting standards.

Anyone know of an expert in commas?

I do,

He sits in the cube next to mine and can be heard daily ridiculing others for their comma misuse. I would like to set him on fire.

Comma usuage

Well, I would, but after Mae's comment I think I'll just keep it to myself...

You're safe. This guy is just over the top obnoxious. There is a constant stream of ridicule coming from the other side of the wall. No one is as smart as he one can do their job as well as he does..

Mostly, I ignore him. Last week, however, his vitriol was turned toward me. And depending on how you LOOK at it, it worked out well. On the one hand, I was right and he was wrong (go me) on the other..he HATES being wrong, so I am under his microscope now. Pretty sure I'm going to have to set him on fire. It will shut him up, pretty.

Good I feel better now. Acutally, grammatical errors drive me crazy but I learned a long time ago to keep it quiet and who I can "lovingly correct" and who I can't. It sounds like you might get to light that fire afterall. You are correct, fire is pretty!!!

Found one!

by DMambo In reply to Whewww

"afterall"? Are we inventing compound words now?

by Old Guy In reply to Found one!

Very good. I could say you have to consider your audience sometimes but that might get me set on fire, as well. Actually, I did see that when I posted but decided to leave it. I do have to fight myself sometimes to accept errors on my part. Someone told me it would build character--I try. :)

Well look at things this way

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Afterall

What would you prefer Mae to do attack you with her Shovel or set you on fire?

At least when she tries to set you on fire you have a fighting chance to avoid it happening but after getting all but decapitated with Mae's Shovel on the first strike you are sort of stuffed.

Pyros-R-Us... I concur with the Old Guy.

Please rescind my application for the above post of "Senior Comma Placement and Grammar Corrections Officer" with immediate effect.

(Now what did I do with that fire-retardant blanket?)

"Flame on!"

I'm, sure, you, can, find, someone

by robo_dev In reply to I think that there might ...

Of course I think they also need help with capitalization, so there is a real money-making opportunity here.

Seriously, maybe I will start performing a 'scam letter writing' service for $20 USD per letter.

To sign up for my service, I need a copy of their photo ID or passport, a bank account number and routing number....
