I just noticed a new customer has emailed me a scanned image of a spreadsheet (where he has printed and then written on the document) of a set of numbers (only about 300 total) needed for a one-time setup. I had asked for the spreadsheet to use for an import, something we do all the time and could have been done in 5 minutes...and this is what I get! Some users, I get a bad feeling about right off the bat, and this is one of them. It was confirmed in the first minute of conversation when he corrected my enunciation of the word 'elementary'...his version (the correct one) is to stress the 'tar' syllable. Then he apologized for correcting me, and gave me a lesson about how Northerners are more abrupt by nature. I pretended to sound interested and made sure to adjust my dialect and personality to match his. Oh well, during the time that I have been complaining about it, I could be halfway through manually entering the values into a spreadsheet! Just thought others might find amusing...probably not. Rant over. Smile | :)
