    Come on Dean. Are you seriously calling another individual an idiot? To begin with, you didn’t even capitalize your name. Secondly, your grammar needs some revisions. To top it off, you misspelled ; idiot, license, and forever. Hope you can read better than you can spell, otherwise they should suspend your license.
