Don’t ask if it’s a hard job

I hear the voice of experience in this Craigslist posting for a bicycle rickshaw job in Denver, Colorado: “Please don’t email me to ask if this is a difficult job. I will reiterate– you are lugging hundreds of pounds of human being around a city in the back of your giant adult tricycle. Also, please don’t email to ask if it will be cold while doing this job. Let’s take a quick peek at a calendar. It’s January. So, we’ve established this is a hard job and it’s cold outside.” I’m surprised also to learn a valid Colorado drivers license is required to take this job!

    Do you realize this is a web site, not a newspaper and that there is no fold.

    @Roger – no literal fold, no. But bloggers commonly use the phrases “below the fold” or “after the jump” to refer to additional content that doesn’t fit into the rss feed item, when their feed only shows part of each article.

    And yet you knew exactly what I meant there, Roger.

    Whoops, I misspoke. The Cyclelicious feed includes full articles. But “the fold” can also refer to content that isn’t initially visible in the browser – you have to scroll down to see it.

    That’s the wrong answer if I have to figure out what you meant, and *correct* your English (e.g., complementary vs. complimentary)… but in this case, it’s straight out figurative language (which is even more universally legitimate than poetic license).    Official Grammar Police (I remember passing an online test to earn the title ;P) and Word Nerd sayeth so.
