Oh good. We are discussing ThickGirl's misuse of the word 'verbiage' in a second thread. And yet nobody bothered to catch her grammatical error in this one.
I know everyone is hating on ThatGirl, but I don't like the Facebook likes either.
Petition to add individual posts and usernames to things we can like.
Petition to add individual board members' specific body parts to thinks we can like.
What shows up on the FB page when a thread gets Liked?
I would love it if we could have "like" system on this board that has nothing to do with Facebook. There are a ton of great sarcastic comments I have wanted to "like" on this board.
Just DO NOT bring back the Tags.
Although we all know, I loved the attention. Right, Pot?

Well, actually it's also a way for us to be able to easily share potentially useful links to our facebook friends who might not be on the board.
And the only kind of people who would use verbiage in that context are people who might have been told at some point in their life that it means "wording," but who've clearly never been around anyone intelligent enough to use it in sentences correctly and thus they never grasped the nuance of what it refers to. I used to see this a lot with the morons in my AP classes.
Look, I'm sorry that you didn't have smart parents or teachers around to provide a good example of word usage. English is a very difficult language, and what with you being Canadian you're already at a rather significant intellectual disadvantage. I think you should be proud of your... competent ability to form sentences that 99 percent of the populous would never notice was riddled with these minor issues.
Unfortunately, I got 99 problems and verbiage ain't one.
If you weren't so hellbent on refusing to admit that you're capable of having made a mistake, this conversation would have been over ages ago and you would have learned a valuable lesson. It's important when applying for new jobs to show that you can take criticism well and treat it as an opportunity to make yourself better, not shoot the messenger.
I'm not looking for work. I have a full time job, a personal side business, and a startup to deal with. I just like to have my resume up so that I get two to three calls every day from people eagerly trying to court me to come work for them so that I can make wild demands. Soon as one of them agrees to never complain at me no matter what time I show up at the office and it's no more than a five mile drive from my apartment and I can telecommute three days a week, I'll change jobs. Til then I'm fine, but thanks for your concern.
Luck's not really that important when you have tremendous abilities, are extremely attractive, and never misuse fifty cent words.
Have you ever had a job that actually involved you, you know, producing something useful? Like where you DID something instead of just apply a bunch of idiotic standards about proper cover letter and resume form and etiquette?
