Are you doing that on purpose?

I'm not sure a compulsive habit exactly qualifies as "on purpose."

My biggest pet peeve in the language department is "me and". I had a teacher in 5th grade that whenever we would use that term she would reply that (name used) is not mean. It broke a lot of us form using it & phrased it properly as ?? & I. I have done that with my children too. Unfortuntaly the wrong way is used all over the place tv & movies included now.

No, his "habit" isn't what I am talking about. Reread his post (#16). :D

***Dacs I will eat your misteak....with A-1
LOL

me, definitely tons of errors. fast finger syndrome on the typing. also one long run on sentence with .... in it and no caps etc. I bet my posts must drive you insane. Hmm...can I push you over the edge? :ep
You can try. Just to let you know though, if I find it too hard to read then I don't read and I miss out on things. I hope I don't miss anything important.

I think we should make you work for it, Dac! In that way you will have to peruse all our individual threads to make a score! :D
