"transit", as it were

Jeff is a hotel concierge and acheived funny looks by reading my site at work. I love that. He also, on the same day, received mail including this little gem. In his words, "It's from WageWorks, a program which allows me to buy a 30-day MetroCard pre-tax. I can't figure out why I'm a 'transit' rider. I think it might be WageWorks' commentary on the NYC subway system. After all, we do spend far to long waiting for those trains! It's as if they're saying 'here you go, I guess you can call it "transit" if you must!'"

(fellow pedants: is a quote within quotes within quotes back to double? I'm just not sure.")

Yes, double quotes within single quotes and vice versa, nested as many times as you like.

Seems like Jeff ought to be wary of throwing stones from glass houses. Doesn't seem like his grammatical foundations are all that solid.

Everyone misses a keystroke now and then.

If you don't have anything nice to say...
