Moderators hinted I, like others should be nicer.

I could go with this walls are flat concept and almost did.

Guys from Maryland have crabs and why fight a battle with them itching down there all the time. Two hands scratching they will never have my back.

And even though I flunked metaphysics trying to read the mind of the person next to me? I have to keep my mind open to the possibility that that we all only think walls have to be flat. More money in it painting walls that are something else. If you think about it? Or don't.

Hope so and cannot speak for others but we like helping when we can. It does get to us at times and I guess I am guilty of being a tad snarly or snarky at times? Glad you spot the humor in all of us too.

There is a lingo in the trades we try to bring to you all---along with, to brag incredible levels of real experience. You will never quite understand phrases like, "Just nail it Gus!" and we know that. Please understand that we do not mean to be mean. But sometimes absurd questions, repeated over and over, every week, set us off and we just need to explore inner child or something and vent for awhile.

I also think some of us bring some sort of mellowed jobsite banter to this site too often perhaps. Posters get caught in the middle of a somewhat foreign language? In this case, take us to the matt, corner us and force us to talk to you.

I cannot promise I will always be nice but for a day or so I will try harder.

I think it's an amazing service you professionals offer by helping and advising beginners (like me). It's very charitable of you to share your knowledge. A true act of kindness.

My job site banter involves talking to myself
