  • Beautiful day today, but next week will be a shocker - grey, cloudy, rainy and temperatures barely reaching 15c, or even 10c on some days. Miserable.

    • It's somewhere between 73f and 75f at the office, and everyone but me is complaining that they're hot. They've all got fans going. I just don't understand how this range of temperature is considered hot.

      • Dear Americans,

        Please refrain from saying "could care less" as it makes absolutely no sense at all. The correct phrase is "couldn't care less".

        Thank you.

          Dear CavemanJoe-

          We lot are prone to sarcasm. The phrase "I could care less" is an example of this.

            I think it's a colloquialism for "I could care less, but I don't," which is sarcasm also.

            You're welcome.

              I generally prefer "And...?"
              As it suits nearly every occasion!
              You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

                Also, "You've obviously confused me with someone who cares." I love when I remember that at the perfect moment.

                • Thanks for trusting me on this project. Really. I'm glad to know you trust me so much as to try to take away half of it before it even gets to my hands.

                    One of my faves is "And you point is????" Has the same meaning

                        • Travel, which involves eating in restaurants that have NO CLUE how to cook ("medium" steak brought to me burnt to an absolute crisp), or eating hotel breakfasts (not horrible, but generally inadequate), and not getting nearly enough activity.

                          • I send you very simple and explicit instructions to USE THIS PARTICULAR PROGRAM. Then you fucking email me, "So I was using OTHER PROGRAM and it wasn't working so then I switched to the ONE YOU TOLD ME TO USE..."

                            I don't care that the correct program isn't working properly, honestly, because you cannot follow instructions. I practically BULLET POINT my questions to you and you will answer one of them. ONE. Sometimes it's the first question, sometimes it's the last. HOW MANY TIMES DO I NEED TO SAY I NEED FUCKING INFORMATION TO FIX YOUR PROBLEM.

                            This has been an IT moment.

                            • Seriously? Less than a week to design a whole subdivision? Really? And you've been in the biz... how long was it you claimed? 50 years? Were you planning on joining the real world before you retired?
