Well, I had no idea that I was so popular. Perhaps I should have taken bids. I would rather be owned by the Sisterhood than Bill Gates. :-p
Now I suppose that I have to start malfunctioning.

I would have considered taking the $1.75, as long as it was accompanied by a written promise to become a card-carrying Democrat. :-p

You can just keep on with all your bad habits, but now they won't be faults - they'll be "features". :smile:

Sure, why not - as long as I don't have to vote for one, I'll carry whatever card makes you happy.
