    Okay, nobody has fessed up to the anonymous
    Amphi parking sign gift giving. As promised
    I will spam this Amphi-lovers Board with a slew
    of useless tasteless spam trivia nonsense "chit."

    "One tradition carried on in the Navy is the use
    of the word "chit." It is a carry over from the
    days when Hindu traders used slips of paper
    called "citthi" for money, so they wouldn't
    have to carry heavy bags of gold and silver.
    British sailors shortened the word to chit
    and applied it to their mess vouchers.
    Its most outstanding use in the Navy
    today is for drawing pay and a form
    used for requesting leave and liberty,
    and special requests. But the term is
    currently applied to almost any piece
    of chit paper from a pass to an official
    letter requesting some privilege."

    It's only gonna get worse... so will the kind
    generous gift giver please confess. It's not
    fair to torture the rest of our flock unnecessarily
    and ultimately I'll get banned from the Amphi-
    lovers board. Please e-mail me off line so I
    can thank you properly... and salvage what little
    hair I have left. Thank you.
