One of my co-workers sent out an e-mail recently telling us she could help us with bank quarries which would provide us with a list of customers with that included names, addresses, phone numbers and collected balances. 

Um, do you, by any chance, mean queries?

Bank rock pits are so much more interesting, though.  Imagine the obstacle course to the teller stations!  You'd need dynamite to enlarge the vault.  Think of the possibilities!   ;D

A bank could have a quarry...if quarry was their cute name for the pool of information they pull the names, addys, and numbers out of.

I doubt that was the case however.

I like to think she meant this:

That's what they used to call Grape Nuts...because Grape Nuts are rocks.

When I worked in a physical therapy clinic we got a box of supplies with this written on the side:

FISIKAL THIRRIPY

One of the therapists hung it on the break room bulletin board.

I suspect that it was written by someone who spoke Tagalog but not fluent English because of the way the native Tagalog speakers I knew pronounced "physical therapy."

I hope I don't trip the filters here...on one of our military moves, the moving crew wrote one one box "flodding tables" and on another "blowing ball"!

Last weekend, the city of Chattanooga had electronic highway signs warning of "inclimate weather."  Several of them.

Hmm, now I have to wonder what "out-of-climate weather" would be. Snow in Tahiti?
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Sounds like Gringotts. . .
"I don't mean to be rude", he began, in a tone that threatened rudeness in every syllable.

"--yet sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often," Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely.  "Best to say nothing at all."
