A friend just emailed this to me, hoping other long-term residents find it as sad and funny as I did:
Virgin Islands Hell

Hilarious! In a really awful way, of course.
Sad but FUNNY.LOL
lol that was great but instead of going home he goes to his other job
Or gets stuck in traffic on the way to the electric chair. 🙂
That is so funny. Of course it could also apply to several other islands I can think of.....! Is there any way to forward this to someone?
Too funny Onika. 😉
Sabrina, assuming you have a windows operating system........Use your mouse and place the curser at the beginning of the joke. Left click and holding it in the clicked position, drag it down to the bottom of the narrative you want and release the left click. The narrative should be completely highlited now. Then at the top left of your monitor, click on edit.....a small window will open.....one of the options will be "copy"......click on "copy"........Now, go to your email, open a new email and place your curser in the box you would write your email in....Left click once.......Click on edit again.......select the option "paste".....viola!!!
The narrative you copied is now pasted to your email!!!! Give it a try and let me know if it works for you.
Now if you have a MAC computer, I can't help you:)
Thank you so much Jay. I tried it and it worked. Also used an option to save it on a file. I'm embarrassed that I don't know more about computers, but have only ever learnt airline reservations and "client track" in the course of my work! I know I really need to do some training, just haven't got around to it yet.
someone emailed that joke to me last week and it was so true I sent it out to a bunch of people who aren't from here and they are still trying to figure it out... which is even funnier.
Sabrina, I am glad I could help.....save the note and use it every time you see something you like and want to forward.
