Interesting choice of words...

Associate: "Do you have your business rewards card with you today?"
Customer:"Oh, yeah. I'm a special education teacher, here's my teacher one."
Associate:"Thanks. Go ahead and push the green button on the pad."
Customer:"Um, I already said I don't want cash back once, should I push it again?
Associate: "O Yeah, sometimes you have to hit it twice. Our system is sooo retarded."

I like words

Unlike speech, writing operates in the absence of the speaker...

Line from literary theory text I'm reading:

If the question is "Should I?" then the answer is "It depends who you are and who you want to be."
