That's myself story and I'm stickin' to it!

It's more descriptive and it's colloquial use defines an exact area.
It tells you more than simply using the word neighborhood which doesn't tell you very much.
A "neighborhood" could be anywhere.

From my portfolio manager, "We are in this for the long haul". Translation, you just lost a bundle.

"That's One"
You know when you not quite done addressing the ball and as you're settling in, ready to hit it, for one reason or another the ball falls off the tee? That's when sometimes, a newby says "That's One".

Oh yea, I don't like newbie either.

"Getting your panties in a twist"

While we're at it, I think the word RUDE is overused.
She was rude to rear end our car.
That was rude to show up in the same outfit.
They rudely expected to swim during water aerobics.
It was rude not to send flowers.
Rude not to bathe.
Rude to do this and that...etc.

Here's one that's on the list and is grossly overused:

"Amazing".

Example: "I have the most amazing husband..he just put down the remote and got up to get his own beer!!!!"

Like he's some kind of wizard..

Someone should take a deep breath and reconsider their words. I'm relatively new here but have been reading TOTV for several years.

I feel strongly that an apology is in order for calling one of the most prolific and kind posters here a 'troll.' Get angry, but do not throw that word around carelessly or maliciously.

Thank you.
