Those were my thoughts exactly on that contract. Needless to say, I didn't
take the contract when it was offered. Over the years, I've developed less
patience with that kind of thing, and now, such clueless questions from
people barely elicit a response on my part. As you said, life is much
simpler when you don't take on the responsibility of responding to every
dolt-issued question...; )
