not THAT greatly


Paul suggests that this realtor shows his appreciation in cold hard cash, or perhaps in other favors.

According to the sideways note on the left, old Mark here is one heck of a salesman! If I'm trying to sell my house, I think I would rather have him highlight the fact that he is good at his job rather than just glomming on to the next commission check that comes his way. But that's just me.

Can we please analyze the grammatical structure of: greatly appreciate? Besides the fact that it's annoying when people say it.

Isn't this just a quote from the realtor? If it's something he said, aren't the quotations correct?

be warned, will, that kind of talk isn't taken kindly to around these here parts.

This is just a quote... "I greatly appreciate your referrals" says Mark Geier, Realtor. If you don't agree, can you not see a difference between that message and "Top 1% in sales nationally" which would be ridiculous in quotes.

Good thing this isn't the blog of incorrect quotation marks, or I'd be embarrassed. And can't we all agree that it's a weird thing to put on a whatever this is, anyway?

Jeff said...

John, besides Bethany's point that that's not really the point, the quote is never attributed to anyone. I also see no word bubble, though that would be awesome.

actually, i'd love if he had a big fluffy thought bubble coming from his head.. his expression really calls for it. or for a speaking bubble, take a new picture with his mouth open. that'd make for some quality bus/bench signage.

The quotes denote that it is spoken from him. Do not forget that quotations have more than one meaning.

I read it as being a quote from a client, who should have been attributed but Mark doesn't care.

Dear Tom: do not forget to read the comments before your own. And the FAQ.
