That's great! A lady at work recently sent out an email that's become one of my favorites of all time. The email chain went like this:
Joe's Question--"Thank you for the information. When you try to print, are you consistently able to?"
Bonnie's Response--"I could before this week one time this week I had trouble for the most part not trouble printing. I could before this week one time this week I had trouble for the most part not trouble printing."
Bonnie is a great sport and now has a copy of her email response taped inside her work station. We refer to it as an ancient Chinese proverb.

Could be workable with the right amount of work. Oh and it was originally sold as new. Trailer not included.
Price is kind of firm or BO

When you don't know what to say, say something anyway. Make it sound like you are intelligent. Wasn't that the proverb?

The proverb went something like: Its better to be suspected a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt! My father told me that many times. I think that he was telling me to shut up.

We have a seller near me that keeps tying to sell musical firewood. He sells it by the chord and not the cord.
Someone was actually trying to sell "Shelfs" last week. I had email and ask WTH is a shelfs ?
A fellow typo critic like myself huh? Maybe the wood is really just a flute? And the Shelfs could be shelves for elves?? Just saving a few letters is all he is doing.
