I wish I had a dollar for every time I've...

…typed Exit Bus instead of Exit Sub when programming in VB.

…turned off the pilot light instead of turning up the flame on the gas logs.

…walked into the kitchen and forgot why I went.

heard the phrase “I wish had a dollar for every time…”

…every time I’ve had to explain the difference between a phrase and a clause. :wink:

…every time I wanted to say this.

… mistyped th eword “the”.
Whoops, that’ll be a dollar, please.

The worst part of the walking into the supply room at work, and not remembering what I came in there for is the sure knowledge that when I get back to work, I am still gonna need the thing I came in her to get.

I shall return.


… taken a breath.

Wouldn’t you? I’m only 15 and assuming that each year lasts exactly 365 days of exactly 24 hours each; that I am exactly 15 years old as of this very moment; and that you take very roughly one breath every 5 seconds, I’d have $94,608,000. That’s quite a bit of money.

…my ankle has done that thing where it turns sideways and makes me trip.

A nice new dollar would sure make that better. sigh

I wish I had a dollar

for every time I made a vB coding error :smack:

I wish I had a dollar for every time:

I had to tell one of the cats or dogs to move, dammit!

Someone at work asked me something I’d already told them ten times.

I lost my keys, cell phone, or pda.

. . . everytime I spent a dollar.

Every time I spent fifty cents!

Yeah but I thought the clause in question was “If I had a nickel for every time…” Has inflation really gone this far??? :eek:

Anyway, I go with “…I logged on to the SDMB”

Probably make a lot of people here rich.

I wish I had a dollar for every typo I’ve seen that leads to an interesting mental picture.

I know teh feeling.

I wish I had a dollar for everytime my main tutor the last year said the word ‘bus’. (“2+2=/=bus” was pretty much a catch phrase for him)

I use an intranet site called “Repnet”. Every damn time I type “Repent”. I am sure there is subconscious meaning there.
