Touché!

However, something tells me Zeichen's colleague wasn't quite that clever.

Exemplary, CA!

Kat, I will venture to guess you failed because the linguistic center of your brain, like mine, considers this particular misapplication anathema. Somehow, substitution of "ask" for request, question, inquiry and the like is creeping into the business lexicon. I can't even construct a decent example because it is so unnatural! (Best I can do is a fragment, heard last week: "anticipate the ask." Yes, it hurt to repeat that!)

It drives me even further up a wall than similar faux pas seen here ("install" for installation, etc.), probably because at least here, it's casual not professional. It would be a fatal career decision for me to attempt to enlighten the most grievous offenders!

First step is the human sacrifice. You have a girlfriend?

What!! A question about C2C5? How'd that creep in? Adams, PM DSXMachina. He will put you on the list. Welcome aboard!!

Now back to the inanity. . .

In this case, a decent example is oxymoronic. Only an indecent example can exist.

ps: The Top Kat is requisite, indispensable, and non-negotiable equipment. (It is, what it is.)
135i vert tops them all with or without the hat

If you're bringing the 24 year old girlfriend, you can be in my Luxury group (I'm the leader) and I'll even give you special privileges; if she rides with me, there's 105 pounds less you have to worry about, you get a faster, tighter ride up the mountain. It's called Executive Concierge Service. It's special. I'm very particular about appearances, so make sure she wears a tailored skirt, has a French pedicure, and open-toed sandals.

PM me the address where I can send your invoice for $1,000 for being a group leader.

You can make your check payable to Survive the Drive and your donation is tax deductible.

Thank you for your generosity.

While all this "group leader" stuff makes for interesting reading for those out of towner BMW pilots, we native Kanc pilots simply laugh at this "who's on first" role playing fantasy.

I plan to wipe the bum of any wannabe 3 series pilot through any of the chosen routes we have available to us. That's including the Bear Notch skills test..

I've seen the competition and it doesn't impress me. Either bring your racing shoes or bring your wine tasting talents.

I've laid down the gauntlet. I now say....bring it.

Easy to lay down the gauntlet, when the reigning champ will be waiting for his brand new EBII 335xdrive sedan msport. This year you get off easy.

Curious to know, will the factory be creating an emblem with that information? If so, you may need a wider rear deck to accommodate it.

Don't know about your situation, but CtoC has ended engagements, and resulted in engagements. Be warned.

Can't wait to see your new steed.

Plus, this thread needed more bluster.
