"The car bounced off of the guard rail and...."

It should be "The car bounced off the guard rail and..."

Oh well...

Quite! Your distrubbing my knap!

I know I make typos all the time, and catch many in 'edit'. I hope I don't let your substitue for you're, but one never knows. Spell checkers do not no the word isn't write. Four the most part, I think posters on this forum do just find. This is a diverse group which includes left coasters, and right coasters, and all of us in between (up north and over the see two!). Know won is goina be happy wif all da pour usage. Everyone should be happy, however, at the fun we have our aluminum treasures!

The annoying girl at the McDonalds drive-thru with the same high pitched, overly friendly, "telephone voice" as I call it.

Every morning I order a sausage biscuit/McMuffin and a large Diet Coke and every morning she asks "Would you like to add a hash brown and make it a meal for only a dollar more?".

I want to say "If I don't have a hash brown is it not really a meal? Does it only qualify as a snack? If I wanted a hash brown don't you think I would've asked for one?".

I hate when people try to up-sell.

"That" and "the fact that"...

Anyone get an ear bruise caused by the fact that "that" is the written version of the verbal "um"? (argh, insidious ain't it)

A Google search of our Airforums site returns "about 38,703 results" for the exact word phrase "the fact that".

And "that" used alone returns "about 109,008 results".

"That" can be omitted from 77.55% of all sentences without harm!

Another one courtesy of my mother-in-law: "You better don't"

That is a complete sentence she uses when you are doing something that bothers her.

I love statistics. But, 82.19% of all quoted statistics are simply invented.

The "bumper-to-bumper" warranty I purchased when I bought my truck does not cover the bumpers or a bajillion other parts on the truck.


And the other day I was told by the store I bought my "waterproof" work boots at and also the manufacturer (Rocky) that waterproof does not mean you can stand in water.
