Oooo... I want one! Where the heck would you get one??? [/quote]

I got mine on eBay. you can get them pretty cheap there. and they weigh a TON!!!!

Word of advice though - if you get one, people will constantly be stopping to comment, play with it, etc and if you don't like to be bugged, you will end up hating it. that's what happened to me.

My pet peeve right now is that dumb commercial for "The Simple Life" where they are cutting a desk in half and they are like "Oh my God, we are going to be in so much trouble", and you can tell they are "acting", only it's just so pathetic if you were not watching the screen you would swear that it was someone from a remedial reading class reading straight off of a paper! Who even watches that show anymore?

People that throw their cigarette butts on the ground. It is bad enough to have to walk thru all of their smoke when leaving or coming into the building but it really irks me that the ground looks like a butt farm.

People that leave voice mail like "Call me, I have a question". If they would leave a full message you could do the research and send an email or should you then get their voice mail you could leave them the answer.

LOLoad, DQ...

Along the same vein, I have given up trying to keep the pup from peeing on the grass out back, but I try very hard to keep the front yard green. When we take her for a walk, we go out back to let her do her business first-95% of the time, she waits til she is in the front!! UGH....

wishful thinking ...
People who have been in banking for years longer than I have and call ask me a stupid question about what to do when a teller is out of balance. HELLO, there are procedures written for that!

Also those same people who cannot use a worksheet that has been developed for them without deleting the formulas that are in the worksheet.

Then there are those people who don't like from the time you begin your employment at the bank and think that you don't need an assistant because they don't think they you work.

As you can tell it is a Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood!!

My pet peeve is people who don't speak correctly. If this is your first language, learn it!!! For example,

- supposably for supposedly
- brang instead of brought
- when someone says something like: I don't care whether or not they do it or not. (Really?)
- I couldn't care less. (Well, yes, you probably could...)

and the song No Rain by Blind Mellon when they say "...my cheating stagedy..." instead of strategy. That bugs me every single time I hear it.

Along that same vein, saying "tooken" instead of "taken", "ax" instead of "ask"...

Ok, some of us are not able to pronounce "ask" and it ends up sounding like "ax"!!!

Hence, why I rephase whatever I have to so I do not have to say the "ask".

This is interesting to me BBS, and I'm not picking on you. Do you have the same trouble with "mask" and "task" etc? I wonder why it would cause a challenge.
