Quote: That old cliche "glass half empty or glass half full"?

Well I always keep mine FullWink

An accountant doesn't care whether it's half empty or half full provided he's able to downsize the glass.

A lawyer doesn't care whether it's half empty or half full provided he's able to sue the landlord for serving short measure.

I'm going off topic, but Cameracat made me think of something!

What I really, really hate is when you type the word 'Colour' in Word or Outlook (Even this pigging post!!!!!) and it get's underlined as an error because of the flipping U. The Queen's English says there's a U in colour, (Arrgh, it's done it again), we all know there's a 'U' in colour, but oh no, Mr Microsoft only gave us the Option of 'US' or 'International' English - We invented the bloody thing, so how come there's not a 'Queen's English' version?

And don't even get me started on SecoUnd

Oooh, I could crush a grape!

Yes there is - you just have theproofing language set wrong on the document. Here is how you change it in Office 2010 - there are similar options in all the other versions.

At work today a sales guy explained that their product was "almost unique".
I pointed out that almost means it's not, and was told that I'm "picky".
He's not getting any work from me!!!

This is probably more amusing than annoying. The following words are on a certificate which I received from the Australian government, for Sales Tax exemption.

This Certificate of Registration shall remain in force until -
(a) in the case of a natural person - death or bankruptcy of the person;
(b) in the case of a person other than a natural person - dissolution of the person;

Since then Sales Tax has been replaced by a Goods and Services Tax.

A limited company is considered to be a "person" under English law.

Quaint but makes perfect sense

"The Wife"

If I say "My wife" I could be told that she is not my possession.

On the other hand I'm "her husband" Grin

"To Have and to Hold"

I have all the bills and she holds all the money Wink
