An All Too Apt Raymond Chandler Quote

She hung up on me. I hung up on myself. Saying the wrong thing is one of my specialties.

From "The Pencil" a.k.a. "Marlowe Takes On The Syndicate" a.k.a. "Wrong Pigeon" by Raymond Chandler.

Paulie Decibels,

Chandler was one of the greatest minds of the 20th Century and unfortunately he will never be recognized as such.

He might have been writing about me. I say the wrong thing all the time even when I'm heavily employing my inner edit button.

Dale,

Oh, c'mon, get out of here! You're the Torontonian equivalent of the Teflon Don!
