You can shout at me all you want, but I shall never resort to improper capitalisation.

This does not excite me, and I shall kill all your joys.

LET'S TALK ABOUT SOMETHING IMPORTANT. ARE THEY ALL HERE?
ALL BUT ONE.
WELL, I'M GOING ANYWAY. LET'S TALK ABOUT SOMETHING IMPORTANT! PUT THAT COFFEE DOWN! COFFEE'S FOR CLOSERS ONLY. DO YOU THINK I'M FUCKING WITH YOU? I AM NOT FUCKING WITH YOU. I'M HERE FROM DOWNTOWN. I'M HERE FROM MITCH AND MURRAY. AND I'M HERE ON A MISSION OF MERCY. YOUR NAME'S LEVENE?
YEAH.
YOU CALL YOURSELF A SALESMAN, YOU SON OF A BITCH?
I DON'T HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS SHIT.
YOU CERTAINLY DON'T PAL. 'CAUSE THE GOOD NEWS IS -- YOU'RE FIRED. THE BAD NEWS IS YOU'VE GOT, ALL YOU GOT, JUST ONE WEEK TO REGAIN YOUR JOBS, STARTING TONIGHT. STARTING WITH TONIGHT'S SIT. OH, HAVE I GOT YOUR ATTENTION NOW? GOOD. 'CAUSE WE'RE ADDING A LITTLE SOMETHING TO THIS MONTHS SALES CONTEST. AS YOU ALL KNOW, FIRST PRIZE IS A CADILLAC ELDORADO. ANYONE WANT TO SEE SECOND PRIZE? SECOND PRIZE'S A SET OF STEAK KNIVES. THIRD PRIZE IS YOU'RE FIRED. YOU GET THE PICTURE? YOU'RE LAUGHING NOW? YOU GOT LEADS. MITCH AND MURRAY PAID GOOD MONEY. GET THEIR NAMES TO SELL THEM! YOU CAN'T CLOSE THE LEADS YOU'RE GIVEN, YOU CAN'T CLOSE SHIT, YOU ARE SHIT, HIT THE BRICKS PAL AND BEAT IT 'CAUSE YOU ARE GOING OUT!
THE LEADS ARE WEAK.
'THE LEADS ARE WEAK.' FUCKING LEADS ARE WEAK? YOU'RE WEAK. I'VE BEEN IN THIS BUSINESS FIFTEEN YEARS.
WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
FUCK YOU, THAT'S MY NAME! YOU KNOW WHY, MISTER? 'CAUSE YOU DROVE A HYUNDAI TO GET HERE TONIGHT, I DROVE A EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLAR BMW. THAT'S MY NAME! AND YOUR NAME IS "YOU'RE WANTING." AND YOU CAN'T PLAY IN A MAN'S GAME. YOU CAN'T CLOSE THEM. and you go home and you tell your wife your troubles BECAUSE ONLY ONE THING COUNTS IN THIS LIFE! GET THEM TO SIGN ON THE LINE WHICH IS DOTTED! YOU HEAR ME, YOU FUCKING FAGGOTS? A-B-C. A-ALWAYS, B-BE, C-CLOSING. ALWAYS BE CLOSING! ALWAYS BE CLOSING!! A-I-D-A. ATTENTION, INTEREST, DECISION, ACTION. ATTENTION -- DO I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION? INTEREST -- ARE YOU INTERESTED? I KNOW YOU ARE BECAUSE IT'S FUCK OR WALK. YOU CLOSE OR YOU HIT THE BRICKS! DECISION -- HAVE YOU MADE YOUR DECISION FOR CHRIST?!! AND ACTION. A-I-D-A; GET OUT THERE! YOU GOT THE PROSPECTS COMIN' IN; YOU THINK THEY CAME IN TO GET OUT OF THE RAIN? GUY DOESN'T WALK ON THE LOT UNLESS HE WANTS TO BUY. SITTING OUT THERE WAITING TO GIVE YOU THEIR MONEY! ARE YOU GONNA TAKE IT? ARE YOU MAN ENOUGH TO TAKE IT? WHAT'S THE PROBLEM PAL? YOU. MOSS.
YOU'RE SUCH A HERO, YOU'RE SO RICH. WHY YOU COMING DOWN HERE AND WASTE YOUR TIME ON A BUNCH OF BUMS?
YOU SEE THIS WATCH? YOU SEE THIS WATCH?
YEAH.
THAT WATCH COST MORE THAN YOUR CAR. I MADE $970,000 LAST YEAR. HOW MUCH YOU MAKE? YOU SEE, PAL, THAT'S WHO I AM. AND YOU'RE NOTHING. NICE GUY? I DON'T GIVE A SHIT. GOOD FATHER? FUCK YOU -- GO HOME AND PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS! YOU WANNA WORK HERE? CLOSE! YOU THINK THIS IS ABUSE? YOU THINK THIS IS ABUSE, YOU COCKSUCKER? YOU CAN'T TAKE THIS -- HOW CAN YOU TAKE THE ABUSE YOU GET ON A SIT?! YOU DON'T LIKE IT -- LEAVE. I CAN GO OUT THERE TONIGHT WITH THE MATERIALS YOU GOT, MAKE MYSELF FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS! TONIGHT! IN TWO HOURS! CAN YOU? CAN YOU? GO AND DO LIKEWISE! A-I-D-A! GET MAD! YOU SONS OF BITCHES! GET MAD! YOU KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO SELL REAL ESTATE? IT TAKES BRASS BALLS TO SELL REAL ESTATE. GO AND DO LIKEWISE, GENTS. THE MONEY'S OUT THERE, YOU PICK IT UP, IT'S YOURS. YOU DON'T--I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR YOU. YOU WANNA GO OUT ON THOSE SITS TONIGHT AND CLOSE, CLOSE, IT'S YOURS. IF NOT YOU'RE GOING TO BE SHINING MY SHOES. BUNCH OF LOSERS SITTING AROUND IN A BAR. "OH YEAH, I USED TO BE A SALESMAN, IT'S A TOUGH RACKET." THESE ARE THE NEW LEADS. THESE ARE THE GLENGARRY LEADS. AND TO YOU, THEY'RE GOLD. AND YOU DON'T GET THEM. WHY? BECAUSE TO GIVE THEM TO YOU IS JUST THROWING THEM AWAY. THEY'RE FOR CLOSERS. I'D WISH YOU GOOD LUCK BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT IF YOU GOT IT. AND TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, PAL: WHY AM I HERE? I CAME HERE BECAUSE MITCH AND MURRAY ASKED ME TO, THEY ASKED ME FOR A FAVOR. I SAID, THE REAL FAVOR, FOLLOW MY ADVICE AND FIRE YOUR FUCKING ASS BECAUSE A LOSER IS A LOSER.

Oh brother. You don't know from caps lock. Let me tell you about caps lock.

In my day, when you hit caps lock, you had to put some oomph into it so that the caps would actually LOCK. You could hear the mechanism catch, could see that the key remained depressed, and damn it, when you typed (on your manual typewriter) the keys actually seemed to make a louder sound. It was gratifying. If felt real. It felt important.

Now, what does caps lock mean? On some keyboards, it might mean a small LED light will go on. That's it. Sure, the letters on the screen are in caps, but it just does not feel the same.

Nope. Caps Lock just ISN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE.

CAPS LOCK HISTORY:

FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE LATIN ALPHABET THERE WAS ONLY CAPS LOCK. THE ROMANS NEVER USED LOWER CASE LETTERS AND DIDN'T EVEN START USING SPACES UNTIL AD 600–800. IN THE ORIGINAL ALPHABET THERE WAS NO J, Y, U OR W AND THE Z SAT WHERE THE G IS TODAY.

EVENTUALLY, HAND SCRIPTED TEXT DISTINGUISHED UPPER AND LOWERCASE LETTERS DURING THE TIME OF THE ROMANS, BUT IT WAS NOT UNTIL THE MIDDLE AGES THAT ANYTHING OTHER THAN UPPER CASE WAS USED FOR DOCUMENTS OR INSCRIPTIONS. AT FIRST IT WAS UNICAL LETTERING AND THAT EVENTUALLY LEAD TO LOWER CASE AS WE KNOW IT TODAY.

THAT IS WHY EVERYDAY WAS CAPS LOCK DAY IN THE ROMAN EMPIRE.

WHICH PROGRAMS ARE SUITABLE FOR CAPS LOCK SDAY:

1) PERL
$FOO = UC "fan tastic product";
Can't locate object method "UC" via package "fan tastic product" (perhaps you forgot to load "fan tastic product"?)

2) PYTHON
>>> FOO = "fan tastic product"
>>> FOO.UPPER()
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 1, in
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'UPPER'

3) QBSIC:

FOO$ = "fan tastic product"
PRINT UCASE$(FOO$)
FAN TASTIC PRODUCT

4) FOR TRAN
THE MARGINS OF THIS WAB PAGE ARE TOO SHORT TO CONTAIN THE COMPLETE SOLUTION

THEREFORE Q BASIC. ALSO FOR TRAN.
