My Chauffer says everything will be alright. : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Thank you for your "contributions", it's all very over-whelming. The women seem to be nicer than the men, but some of the men were nice too. I asked my chauffer about this and he said he didn't think the lights and the water would go off, so I shouldn't worry about the lawns and the roses. That made me feel a lot better. Some of you suggested that the gardiners plant some other things but I want you to know that this is my home and I don't want to turn it into a farm. I hope we get a lot of rain in the middle of 2000 so I won't have to worry about this.

...haven't had as hard a laugh in a long time...

humor does have a place!

-- Perry Arnett (, January 04, 1999.

Does LOL mean "Lots of Love". I have no idea what LOLROTFLMAO means.

-- pattie (, January 04, 1999.

"Stupid is as stupid does _ _ _ er, doesn't."

Your chauffer will explain it all, dear. Now you run on to him.

-- igor (drolltroll@bridge.under), January 04, 1999.

I most cordially agree with you, Patti. There seems to be no preparation advice for the civilized regarding Y2K.

One has so many options, despite what the.... common folk on this forum and others recommend:

Caviar vs. Tuna Perrier vs. bleached tap water Dr. Denton Cooley on premises vs. all those backwater reference books

Wishing you the best of luck. You might try Martha Stewart's page her preparation advice for rose gardens is most well-thought out and illuminating I've read to date.

Good Grief!

-- Vic Parker (, January 04, 1999.

I'm sorry. You're making fun of me. Maybe you can explain it to me because I surely don't get it.

-- pattie (, January 04, 1999.


-- c (c@c.c), January 04, 1999.

Dear Lady,

Some folks explain it differently than others.

-- Critt Jarvis (, January 04, 1999.

Pattie dear, you're the cutest as well as the most polished troll on this forum, a welcome change ;-)

LOL could very well mean "lots of love" from some of us on this forum at times, but in this case it wasn't, since the poster went right away into a fit of ROFLMAO, which is too vulgar to for me to print out in its entirety, although I myself went into convulsions of ROFLMAO at your latest posts.

In the very unlikely event that you are for real and not a troll, allow me this advice; don't worry about anything you hear or read about Y2K, follow your chauffer's advice and continue to tend to your roses for as long as you can. Life's too short, and you are hopeless anyway. You might as well continue living without any undue burden of worrying.

Choking on my last ROFLMAO I remain truely yours,

-- Chris (, January 04, 1999.


If your chauffeur can read, ask him to read through Cory Hamasaki's DC Y2K Weather Reports. The most recent issues can be found here. The rest are archived here.

Then ask him again.

I think I've slipped into the Twilight Zone, or am I just having a senior moment?!

-- gilda jessie (, January 04, 1999.


Just stock up on Grey Poupon, you will be ok.

-- Bill (, January 04, 1999.

"wake up and smell the roses" folks!!!

Pattie - good one - 32 responses to your first "post" - pretty darn good Maam.

Makes Jimmy Bag a nuts look as dumb as he is in real life.

-- Andy (, January 04, 1999.

Thanks Andy, that was very sweet, but it would be a lot nicer if thet weren't laughing at me so much.

-- pattie (, January 04, 1999.

Pattie, "dahling"! You bring all of these responses upon yourself. Obviously you do it on purpose. ROFLMAO means Rolling On Floor Laughing My A** Off. LOL means Laughing Out Loud. And we you......because you are SO funny!

-- Phyllis Diller (lovemy@chauffer.too), January 04, 1999.

for "indeed"....Mrs. Caroline Kennedy??? I've spent the day listening to radio talk people misprounce and use words incorrectly, ad nauseum.

Now you use Mrs. with the name of Caroline Kennedy, Kennedy being her maiden name...I don't even care who she's married to.

If you all are going to attempt to be "cute" you might endeavor to be literate. (sigh)

The only thing that is holding me through the "Dark Troll Days" at Yourdon's is the notion that some of the important information is getting through to others...that, and the knowledge that all the Clowning Illiterati will be the ones who will 'buy it' in the first 2 weeks of any major social collapse. Gotta look for silver linings where you can find 'em these days.

-- Donna Barthuley (, January 04, 1999.

Donna, I was just trolling him/her back with the Ms. Kennedy thing, sorry didn't proffer impeccable grammar and titular correctness.

-- Lisa (, January 04, 1999.

Whoa, Mrs. Grammar Hammer, what's this?:

"I've spent the day listening to radio talk people misprounce.. "


Definitely -10 for sp. and another -5 for ill-wishing. Not very Texan.

-- Lisa (, January 04, 1999.

So, are we going to let her continue to jerk our chains?

-- navajojoe (, January 04, 1999.

Hey, whippersnappers! It's the trolls that are jerking chains,...and all those without the gumption to learn to spell. Earn your stripes. Read some books. Find another forum for goofing!

Oh,...I'm not from Texas, but I could play one on TV.

-- Donna Barthuley (, January 04, 1999.

Oh my! Donna be careful, I think the "Dark Troll Days" are getting the

best of you. Do you realize that even YOU aren't immune to misspelling

when you let your temper take over? Look, I know the embarrassing

feeling, I myself misspelled "chauffeur" and French is my mother tongue.

I was writing it in the midst of an ROFLMAO emotional fit, I had a

slip of the pen/mind/keyboard and simply copied off Pattie's spelling.

Navajoe and Donna, troll threads aren't any different than Fruitcakes or Asylum threads, they can be a healthy outlet to let off steam. They're also good for newbies learning the ropes on this forum. Unless Mr. Greenspun does something about it, trolls won't go away anymore than Y2K will, so I'm doing the best I can with them both ;-)

-- Chris (, January 04, 1999.

Your probably right Chris. As for misspellings, maybe they are just typos instead of misspellings. I over look things like that, as long as I get the jist of the message. However, when the poster starts talking about their high IQ or how rich they are, then that's when I really sit up and take notice.

-- navajojoe (, January 05, 1999.

Hi Donna........I agree with the literate part, but Gayla has got me too many times on the spelling, or was that you? I must admit, it IS better than JBD though. BTW, where is dee dah?
