#1. I'm not acting like a tool. I apoligize if that's how it read. He was advertising that there were shapers from NJ that were going to be attending the show and then a few people started posting links to NJ shapers as if he was asking to get hold of one. He wasn't. I wasn't specifically aiming my comment directly at you, but if that's how you want to interpret it, so be it. I laughed because I see this all the time, people will respond to a thread without comprehending what the thread was about. On all forums. I was pointing this out. If you were interpreting this as me being a****, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to come off like that. I was just pointing out that this had nothing to do with him trying to find a shaper, but him letting everybody know that this event was going to be going on.
#2. Nobody else on the west coast that I know of says “peeps” either. I don’t really care. I have also been known to drop “that’s the bees knees” and “humdinger” on occasion. However “Cali” is just one of those words that most people out here cringe when they hear. But hey, say it if you want. I’m not a regulatory agency or anything. I’m sure you have regional dialect that you use to clue you in to those from out of your neck of the woods and you cringe when you hear out of towners drop those comments, it’s the same thing with the word “Cali”. No big deal, man. Call it what you want. I’m just letting you know that when somebody from California hears “Cali” we automatically assume “tourist”. If you really want to abbreviate it down go “SoCal” or “NorCal” man. It just doesn’t scream “Im not from around here” as much. Damn, I’m just trying to help.
