Actually, the OS is underlining certain words in blue. I have no idea why.

Apparently it’s Apple suggesting I’m using the word wrong.
I typed “Where’s me goddamned parrot?” in the Talk like a Pirate thread and Apple changed “goddamned” to “Goddard” (without asking) and underlined “parrot” in blue as if to suggest I couldn’t possibly mean to use the word.
Now it’s underlying “me” in the previous sentence.
Fuck you, Apple.
|by Anonymous||reply 8||September 19, 2023 1:07 PM|
But it's correct in all of your examples, r8.
Perhaps you will feel better when it is no longer Talk Like a Pirate Day.
|by Anonymous||reply 9||September 19, 2023 1:11 PM|
It may be technically correct, but I’m EXPRESSIVE.
I don’t want Apple second guessing me.
For some reason, it underlined “don’t” and “I’m” until I typed the next word. Why would it assume those are errors?

I’m becoming terribly anxious about R8’s device. I’m going to order a buffalo plaid blanket from Amazon and take to my couch, where I will remain until spring, at which time I probably won’t feel quite so whelmed.

I don't work in real estate, but I work with real estate people (brokers, house flippers, property managers) for certain projects. Did anybody ever notice that real estate people love to get on the phone and call, even though we all know each others' e-mail addresses - and it's not urgent?
I'm old, so this is not a millennial or Gen Z thing about not wanting to talk on the phone.

That's why I don't like "variety packs" of things. There's always one flavor that's a clear favorite. The rest? Meh.

I’m already on my second can today, R24. I need to drink more water anyway, so choking these down as fast as I can should be a win-win!
I don’t like variety packs either. They give two decent flavors as bait, but packaged along with the worst-selling flavor to get rid of it.
Usually, I get the unflavored variety at Aldi, but I was too busy to make a special trip this week and now I’m paying the price.

Loving the 2 newly found Sheena Easton tracks found in the UK EMI vaults recorded during sessions for her 1982 album Madness, Money and Music. “Woman” and “The Lonely Stay Alone” should have been included on the release!

United Airlines just extorted $37 from me to not be in a middle seat on a 5+ hour flight.
On the bright side, the app would not let me select a seat for the return flight, so I had to contact an agent who snagged me a window seat at no extra charge.

They know that when we are booking a flight we are price conscious and when we are getting ready to fly we are comfort conscious, so they have set it up to extract maximum fees. Bastards.

I've been watching videos of a couple who live in Germany.
They have to take turns with their neighbors cleaning the common areas of the apartment building they live in. I never heard of such a thing. Is it common in Germany or other countries?

In the US there are paid staff for larger buildings. For smaller buildings, if it’s a rental, it’s up to the landlord, but if it’s a small co-op or condo, the owners may divide up cleaning the common areas if they don’t want to pay for a superintendent

I just watched another one where she compared Vietnamese workplace with German. Vietnamese immediately ask your age, want to be best friends and tell you not eat snacks because you are already chubby. Germans are like my age is none of your business, I came here to work not be besties, my work life and personal life are separate. I like the German workplace attitude!
