Narcissus' Echo

Thoughts, tears, rants, ruminations, hopes, fears, love(s), and prayers of just another being passing through this wracked sphere...

Too funny and too true!

Go to hell, Microsoft spell check dictionary!

You are hereby estopped from underlining my words with squiggly red lines. The foreseeability of your warrantless flagging is absolutely tortious, you tryptophan-induced twit!

Your vocabulary is worse than that of a FOB exchange student from Zimbabwe.

Your job is to check my spelling. That would suggest that you know how to spell more words that I do. But you don't. And 10 times out of 10, the red underlined word is proudly listed at

But you have no clue what estoppel is. Or pendency. Or declarant. Or decisis. The Supreme Court wants to keep the cops from hanging out in my curtilage, but you'd rather underline it.

And you insist on flagging acronyms, even though I told you to ignore all CAPS since you never know them anyway. CODIS knows my fingerprints, and you think you've caught me red handed.

Well, you haven't.

But dammit, Office (when paid for) is something like $400. Take a small part of this and license a fucking dictionary that has more words than a 4th grade spelling book!
