My sister and I would argue about one of us being adopted, until our mother started telling us we were both stolen from the grocery store, and therefore both adopted but still siblings.

That shut us both up.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: "then"?


Was supposed to be "than," no doubt.

I have several friends, all from the northeast like NJ or NY, who say "then" when the appropriate word is "than." Don't know if their common geography is a coincidence, or if it's a more common mistake in certain areas of the country.

I wonder where Subby is from. I want to confirm my prejudice.

NY and NJ are barely northeast'ish, if even that.

You're quite optimistic if you think that's a typo.

Family dollar would seem like the more appropriate place.
 
2014-02-15 03:50:03 PM  
Than their's Wallmart. To be fare.

It's funny how obvious it is in the pic which sister is from Cali, and which one works at Wal-mart.
 
2014-02-15 03:57:15 PM  
Interesting and sad story. I'd be interested to know more.
What happened in their mother's life that she was pregnant 5 times and she and her husband gave each child away?

To be fair, the typo/grammar thing was more interesting then the article.

I'm pretty sure subby means the place you go to before you go to WalMart with your long lost but now found siblings.  I'm guessing Sonic for some yummy chili cheese fries.
/Going to Sonic now, maybe I will run into a long lost sibling.

Great, they fixed it.  We never have any fun...

It will be funny when the mods clean up the posts referencing the headline error, because than there will be only like three posts left in the thread.

That also struck me as odd. Five kids over seven years?

All I'm seeing getting is that bad taste in hair is genetic. I mean one is in a work smock, the other dressed for the ocaission.

Incestors Anonymous, where'd you meet yours?

John Maixner had been greeted a half a dozen times or so by his sister at their local Walmart in Dickinson, N.D., where she has worked for 23 years.

While I don't think everyone needs to be aggressive about their careers, twenty-three years at Walmart seems a bit sad, especially if she hasn't risen above the job of greeter.

/Good thing he never hit on her
//...or did he?

Just about the only time I've ever been in a WalMart was also the only time I met a reclusive cousin of mine. (There were other relatives present who knew both of us..) He loved playing with explosives (not in WalMart, fortunately or otherwise) and one day died.. doing what he loved.

I think it's a common mistake. The words sound alike, and some people confuse them. You'll see this homophonic confusion with many words, such as ask/axe, or you're/your/yore.

What especially drives me nuts are stock phrases that some people use instead of saying "uh".

For example, "take and". There are sentences where this phrase makes sense. Ex: I'm going to take and use your hammer. But in other sentences, it is used as filler. Ex: I'm going to take and go the the store.

Drives. Me. NUTS.

Nice.  As a new dad I have made a point to remember that one for later :)

Hey subby, connect in what sense? And where? Not even the Supercenters are all that romantic.
