He claims in means 'exactly,' but I sware it means 'about, 'roughly,' 'nearly,' 'nearly.' I even looked it up on wiktionary to prove him wrong, but he still won't admit he was wrong!:D Oh well, at least I know I was right:D Have you ever proven someone wrong, but they won't admit it? Or have you ever been wrong but you won't admit it? Tell all.

You are correct approximate means to estimate

I look at approximately in the same way as I would say "about", I really don't know where he can get "Exact" from, I think it is a very obvious word...I say the trophy goes to you... :)

Judy, thanks for the agreement. I am glad we can finally agree with something. And I just want to appologize for yesterday. I should have just let it go, but I was drunk:D and took quick offense to your words. I hope we can be mature about things from now on.

you should have given him a dictionary and made him looked it up for himself. LOL both has happened to me and i admit, its much easier to prove someone that he or she is wrong than to having someone proved me wrong and make me admit it. ^__^;; im hard at accepting mistakes. and i actually dont like that trait and so i try my best to change it. ^__^

You are right. He probably won't admit he's wrong though, no matter how many here on MyLot agree with you.
