    @#$%&^%*&^$#,

    I just found out this morning that my new Malcolm Young Sig...after a week...is still sitting in a FedEx forwarding warehouse in Arcadia Cal. due to a missing Commercial Invoice, I understand Arcadia is more or less a suburb of Pasadena, where the guitar originally shipped from.

    According to the shop manager...this issue was rectified, a week ago, the day after the guitar shipped.

    The shop manager sent off the corrected paperwork...FedEx claims it was sent in the wrong direction to the wrong entity...

    I'm too old and two jaded to worry, either the guitar or a PAYPAL refund will eventually show up, this glitch has rubbed the shine off the new guitar...

    @#$%$#@&%$...

    Things taken rom the cartoons we grew up with ----"Ragglefrabbit!" "What a maroon!" "Sufferin' Succotash!" "Ya big galoot!"

    Personally, I do my swearing in Polish. It's a language that even spoken politely can bruise the innocent. My old neighbor was a true artiste!

    My favorite example of swearing comes from the dad in A Christmas Story.

    Reminds me of Captain Haddock in Tintin. He always swears and as it is intended for children uses (in French) whether ancient depreciative nouns such as Hurluberlu or rare words which are not insults at all such as Bachi-bouzouk (a soldier type in ancient Turkey) or Ectoplasme (sort of ghost), or even fun combination of words such as Amiral de bateau-lavoir (admiral of a famous artist cabaret in Montmartre which name means wash house but starts with ship in French)...

    I wonder what they are like in English translations...

    WS,

    On Red Foxe's last show, he said...Mother Father, someone else said...Shut the Front Door, Pierre Trudeau claimed he said...Fuddle Duddle!

    Hopefully the right entity, now has the right piece of paper, and my guitar's journey has been allowed to continue...

    Hopefully it's not via Conestoga on the Oregon Trail...

    In God We Trust...

    I'm trying Malcolm, I'm really really trying!

    Okay, this is like the third time I've seen mention of Tintin. I really need to catch up on that guy.

    FWIW, the mods are fine with @#$%&^%*&^$#, and the like, but please, please do not use letter substitutions to thinly disguise words.

    Hopefully your guitar doesn't die of dysentery! :D (A little early computer game humor, right there. )

    I don’t swear/use vulgar language. But I do throw things and carry a shank.

    How about Shakespearean ejaculations (that's the correct word if you follow it with an exclamation point.)
