Ok folks, what is up with all of the Pre-whatever?
If I hear "Pre-order" one more time, I am going to kill! "Pre-order" is that time when you are pulling out the credit card and deciding to call the 800 number. When you give the credit card number, you have ORDERED! I don't care if the product is in stock or not, you have ORDERED the product. You have not pre-ordered the product, the product is ordered and will arrive when the warehouse gets the product. PERIOD!
And while we are
talking about all of this; Pre-boarding is the time that you are standing in line about to show the airline employee your ticket. When you are walking toward the plane, you are BOARDING! I don't care if you are first class and boarding before anyone else or if you have small children and are boarding before anyone else. When you get on the plane, you are BOARDING! Pre-boarding is that time when you are sitting in the terminal wondering if you really want to fly across the country just to have the family ask when you are going to meet the right girl and settle down.
I hope we have cleared this up.
i'm sure that you had pre-written this post.
*giggle* [I am *so* bad!]
Funny! I want to ask about pre-c*m but that would be naughty...
Ah, nothing like an untreated English major... so is an order in advance of availability an "advance order," instead of a pre-order? And advance boarding for people who get preferential treatment?
i concur; pre as a suffix is right out.
