    Words fail me.

    Edit: that was a bit before my time, though I have heard it referred to.

    I think Dave Castelo or his evil clone has come back for Halloween ...
    Freddie meets Jason or
    Dave meets Dick :D.

    no no this case "Pall" isn't his name but merely a title of affection so we need it in a different case. Like this:"pall"

    It's really hard to help someone when you can't fully comprehend their question because of absolutely atrocious grammar.

    Learn to type before you ask questions. If you can't type, do a simple thing called proofreading. It will work wonders.

    I can only wait for Bruce's reply to this flamefest:D

    whose got the Go Back to Tabcrawler pic?
    I need a copy of that ASAP to save on my PC.
    Ok I get it, this is a 'Dear Abby'. He has your bass. You want it back. You are afraid if you ask for it, you will lose his friendship.? Right?

    Here's my answer, adapted from Headcomix, Mr Natural...

    A bass and no friends is better than friends and no bass.

    comprende d00d?
  14. Darn, folks, you are mean! :eek: ;)

    Dick Zander, if the bass is yours, just ask him back. If he's such a good friend, he should understand.

    Edit: Yay! I finally got my avatar besides Thor's! :hyper:

    Not quite, but it is readable. There is a "Preview Reply" button that I would suggest you use to avoid future problems.

    It's your bass, not his. What other advice is there? It is not your problem that he can't get lessons. You will seem a bit fickle if you ask for the bass back a week after you gave it to him, but the way you talk he's had it for awhile.

    You're right--just because he doesn't like Fieldy doesn't mean that you can't like him. However, there seems to be a bit of a trend with people who like fIeLdY around here--they greatly lack maturity and for the most part any evidence of brainpower whatsoever. By the looks of your first post you were furthering that stereotype, but you did redeem yourself somewhat.

    That you did, and since you typed the post where it was readable without considerable effort I hope it gets answered.

    With all of that said, welcome to TB!:)
