The more frightening part is that someone actually pitched the idea, and others thought it was brilliant.

Let Taco Bell do their thing, you guys stick to cough drops.

Wankers!

I have a Taco Bell hot sauce packet on my desk that says "I'm a good listener." Whose idea was it to anthropomorphize hot sauce? Or is it just the packet itself that is a good listener? And how did it learn to listen and communicate its listening ability? So many unanswered questions! shocked laugh

I'll admit that I read your entire comment, but to be honest I was just trying to pronounce "anthropomorphize" in my head the whole time. I just want to forget about it now.

A little humor for your Friday that I thought I'd share as it just made me laugh; poor guy in the bear costume:

So I bought one of those day-by-day box calendars for 2017; being a complete and total literature nerd, I went with the one that offers a Shakespearean insult for each day of the year. Not even two full weeks into the new year, and it's already proving to be the perfect way to start my day.

Some highlights so far:

  • January 2: You speak an infinite deal of nothing. - The Merchant of Venice
  • January 3: Why, but there's many a man that hath more hair than wit. - The Comedy of Errors
  • January 7/8: I have seen better faces in my time than stands on any shoulder that I see before me at this instant. - King Lear
  • January 9: Dispute not with her; she is a lunatic. - Richard III
  • January 11: I was seeking for a fool when I found you. - As You Like It


My favorite up to this point, though, was yesterday's which just so (wonderfully) happened to coincide with the first internal audit exit I scheduled for the year:

  • January 12: If you have tears, prepare to shed them now. - Julius Caesar


Ah, Shakespeare. This is going to be a good year. laugh

Am I the minority in that I appreciate a "Thank you" when I help answer a question for someone (and vice versa)?

Edit: That includes the forums

I also appreciate a "Thank you" but it also doesn't bother me if it is forgotten. In person interactions I feel are much more likely to get a "Thank you" than to get one online.

Is it just me, or do short work weeks somehow feel longer than regular work weeks?

Yes, you're in the minority as far as thank you goes, Norman.
It's just a forum for asking questions and people are busy so I don't expect anything.
I'm paying it forward if I'm able to help and I consider it a treat when someone has/takes the time to say thank you.

As for Randy, we did duke it out a couple of times. My fav was the rate lock he insisted we needed to be getting. And then he flip flopped on me. But he knows his stuff and, best of all, has citations handy that take me hours to find. Glad he still has a bit of time to help out here.
