It’s not a phrase we use so it’s thanks to this show that I’ve learned what ‘gish gallop’ means.

I've never heard that before, and it's perfect.

2. Within the next 5 years calling customer services will be something very few people do and within 10 years call centres will be all gone. Everything will be AI driven chat bots or app self service. If you've used chat to speak to an actual company, and it's a big company, chances are that you've experienced AI chat already during some of that interaction without knowing it.
Note: this isn't at you---you just reminded me that:
Rant: All I wanted was to describe the issue, let you work on it without further molestation, and get notice when, only when, you've figured out how to solve the underlying problem, how I'll be reimbursed---you don't.. you give me a phone number---answered by a [stet]human robot that[/stet] doesn't listen to my phrases or doesn't care, or tell me to `chat' with you a computer robot, that, too, doesn't read my phrases or doesn't care. Where is your `complain' form? You used to have one.. Sure, I could post a letter---I do: it costs me ink, paper, envelope, postage,, my mind, my oh, so precious mind. I don't mind that too much, but you don't reimburse my costs---I'm sure you have your own, but they'd be less if you computerized it. If you kept it computerized. Did you count the trees you're killing? or how many poorer, still profitable customers, you're refusing to serve? You certainly don't seem to know or care that you're discriminating against persons with certain medical conditions that make synchronous communication painful or difficult---and no, I'm no proof against these words: merely `high functioning;' it still hurts.
Do tell me, always, in what way I'm not good.. I'm not used to silent tolerance.
Why can't you just love her?

Rave: My state just voted to legalize marijuana.
Nice!

My state just decriminalized small possession (i.e. without intent to sell) of all(?) drugs, and legalized medical mushrooms.
When all is said and done, more is generally said than is done.
Ask me anything - no, really - but be warned: I will answer. If you didn't want to know... don't ask.

I fully expect rambling and good-natured posts from you both about how comfortable your socks are.
