I know I can be long winded, but...

We've got this guy at work that submits articles to me...I'll call him "Mr. V" (for "verbose")...the guy has never met a prepositional phrase he doesn't like, so his emails always crack me up. I find myself wailing and gnashing my teeth whenever I read them.

Here's a typical one, sent today...

"Good afternoon, Ted. Would you be so kind as to send the notes that you stated were in your possession with respect to contacts for my story? Thank you in advance for your assistance."

Okay, so you want contact information for your sources? Why not just say so?

I'm so glad I can use Live Journal to vent...
