It's redundant. If I were posting somebodyone or something similar, I'm sure you'd think, "wt f?" It's the same with irregardless.

Wasn't taking a shot at your post - just the opposite actually.

All the execs at my office like to do their conference calls with the phone on speaker, and they yell at the speaker, with their office door open. I think they want us to look/listen and think, "Ohhh, he's up to something important."

Hospital Emergency Rooms. Every time my father goes to one he ends up having to wait at least 6 hours before they can finally get him into a room for overnight observation, and yesterday was no different. Damned bureaucracy. Plus the last time I spent an extended amount of time in one waiting with him, I got conjunctivitis for the first time in my life. Too many friggin sick people at the hospital!

Could go with the ambulance trip to ER - much faster that way (I tested)

OK, a tad more expensive though

The trip there wasn't the problem. His doctor actually told him to take an ambulance immediately, but he decided to drive himself because it "wasn't that bad". #-o When he got there he was triaged fairly quickly because they're familiar with his medical history (pretty thick binder by now I bet). But after the decision was made to admit him, that's when it took them something like 4+ hours to deal with the insurance company, talk to doctors, schedule the nuclear stress test, find a room, etc... It's absurd.

I trust some of you have thought about it long enough and decided to start using your turn signals before someone bowls you over.
