40ish and beyond... 40ish and beyond...

Ugh! I'm so pissed and I feel so stupid!

Posted by   + Show Post
I just got my bubble freakin burst!! Argh! I was trying to reply to the post on getting to know you questions. Well, I admit, I am totally computer stupid. My son showed me a couple weeks ago how to copy and paste, but by this morning I had forgotten how. Well, I was bound and determined to figure it out, so while on that post on the computer, I used my phone and googled how to do it, I followed the step by step, and from what I could see, I actually did it! I was so excited! I kept telling hubby I'm a freakin computer genuis now. Well, once I hit the reply button, it posted everything I wanted it to, but it also added a bunch of other words I didn't want. But before I hit reply, those extra words were not shownig up in the reply box as I was answereing, just that question I wanted. Dammit! So when you see my reply to that post, I'm sorry for the way it came out! AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!

It will become all good in a few weeks when you answer more posts.  I usually quote the poster when they do one of them...it is easier than copy and paste...

Ive never actually quoted the original post like that and to be honest, I really couldnt figure out why that button was there for the original, my thinking was you dont need to quote the op, just respond to the post in the reply box. So, I guess that option is on the op for this reason. If you DO quote the op, how does it list the questions so you can answer them? Is that how some are answered with the question in one color and font and the answers in another?
