> > "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."

away"

> > "Went away?"

> > >>
> > "Nothing."
> > >>
> > "Nothing?"

> > "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"
> > >>
> > "No."
> > >>
> > "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"

> > >>
> > "Dark?"

"Tell them you're too [censored] stupid to own a computer."

This is why there should be tougher GUN laws and monthly testing for Drivers permits.

Its not cars or guns that kill.. its people.

I know how that scenario goes all too well. Wish I did not of course, people should know something about what they are getting in to BEFORE they are in over their heads. <font color="blue">There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive IDIOTS!!!!</font color> /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
