I'm developing a freaking tic here!
*takes deep, calming breaths*
Once again, Baptist lady in front of me has thrown into conversation the phrase, 'oh, that's right, you don't believe in the Bible'.
First, I never said that. What I have said, multiple times, is that I do not believe that everything that is in the Bible is literally true. I have even demarcated where I think that shift, in general, occurs in the Old Testament stories. I have explained it. I have explained that the Bible is not, in fact, a book, but a collection of documents that originally had different purposes, different authors. Some historical, some theological, etc. Poetry, for pete's sake! Is there spiritual value in all of these documents? Yes.
Second, what does that phrase even MEAN? Do you mean that I don't believe the Bible exists? If that's the case, well, that's just dumb. Okay? Do you mean that I don't believe the Bible is the means to my salvation? If that's the case then yeah. You're right. I don't. It's a tool. I BELIEVE IN God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit. The Bible is not the core of Christianity! It is not Bible-anity. I- I- *chews on the furniture*

It is NOT my fault that you pay no attention when told what the deposit procedures are. NOT. I don't MAKE the accounting policies, I just inform and enforce them.
IT IS NOT THAT HARD TO MAKE A DEPOSIT FOR EACH SEPARATE CC BATCH! STOP BEING A WHINER!
