Just a little rant-OT

If you easily get offended please read no further.I get a kick out of some people. For instance, im sellin All the body parts and the motor off that sami i jus bought. Anyways i clearly posted that NO drivetrain except for the motor were for sale. I still get people writing asking for the tcase, the axles, the driveshafts. Im not mad, in fact i feel bad cuz i must be doing/saying something wrong or misleading by saying "NO drivetrain parts except the motor are for sale".

Can anybody help me explain it better so that i dont mislead anymore people about what im trying to sale.

All in good fun.

Re: Just a little rant-OT

thats a fair complaint, some guys dont really read the full posting, just the key words. We all have small things that just bug us for some reason even though its not a big deal for others. I, for instance, get bothered when people "sale" parts rather then "sell" them. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Yeah,
The other thing I cant stand is when you do e-mail somebody about what they have for sale and they just dont bother to respond.
That really ticks me off they could take a couple of seconds to at least respond.....

Re: Just a little rant-OT

then again..you sometimes see people saying something is "for sell"

my personal fave is folks who write "loose" when they mean "lose." Loose is the opposite of tight. You might lose something because it's loose, but it's not the same word.

and here's another fave: "bumber" It's not a typo, the b and p keys are nowhere near one another.

and a few more popular ones: stearing and breaks

Of course there's the opposite of loud, which is NOT "quite"

Mating axle parts from more than one vehicle doesn't create a "hybred" axle, there's no such word. The word is hybrid.

I could go on forever, but I guess I will stop with ranting about people who insist on putting apostrophes in plurals.

Re: Just a little rant-OT

I wonder who holds their stupid sign when they type. Jus kiddin.

Ill never forget seeing a sign on a tree in a persons front yard when i was about 5 or 6. It read "Hafe bed for sale" I guess they meant half bed but im not sure that i know what i half bed is.

Re: Just a little rant-OT

Know just what you mean. Either the spelling and grammar is correct or it's not. Can't figure if it's lack of knowledge or "internet spelling". There was a guy on a Solara board who's spelling was so bad nobody could understand him. He's get so pizzed when asked to explain [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] I say LEARN TO SPELL..keyboards have all the keys, use them.
