French was my first language too,so I can relate to what you're saying. I can remember having to learn English in a hurry so I could start school. However it was much easier for me since my friends and relatives were mostly bilingual and could help me pick up English. There was a lot of, "How do you say that in English?" (in french, of course).
At least there are no hieroglyphs all over the place this time. Nasty comment from him, though.
Oh Yes, I remember the days of straps and rulers very well.
Thanks for setting me straight on that. I was obviously looking at the wrong dictionaries. Oh well, live and learn...
I hate to disagree, but just for the record, "disrespect" can and is used as a verb. Check out its definition.
When browsing the detailed expense report at the end of this article, I noticed that huge sums of money were given to Tanerprise Inc. without any explanation as to why the money was spent. Is anybody familiar with this company?
Everything Mary says is true. I know first hand because I'm a senior too, and my Medicare was raised to, guess what, $99+ monthly. I can easily prove it but I won't bother. And she did not exaggerate at all about anything. In my book, calling people liars when they're telling the truth is over the top.
Another case of open mouth, insert foot. Yes, too funny.
You have to remember that the comment regarding "an employee's kid" comes from good old Dan (aka tron). He's famous for coming up with off the wall comments just to get us going.
There are times when I don't agree with someone's comment and I press the "Disagree" button. OK, I admit I don't post a comment stating why I don't agree. There is no rule that I have to explain, but isn't calling me a bottom-feeder going a little too far? After all the concept of using the two options is for you to see how many people agree/disagree with your comment, not to argue with you, call you names, trash you etc. There are times when I would like to do just that but I'd rather keep the peace by staying out of the conversation.
