When I’m President 10-7-2021

I don’t plan on running for president anytime soon.  However, if I did, and was elected, things would be a whole lot different around here.  This post is not meant to get into anything political AT ALL, rather, it’s a way for me to blow off a little steam regarding a bunch of things people say WAY TOO MUCH that drive me crazy.  As there are approximately eight gazillion things that bother me, I will share a partial list, say, every Thursday.

So, without further ado, here is my list of catch words, sayings, and phrases that will be OUTLAWED or simply GONE, should I ever become president.  A word of caution, you most likely use one or many of these………

Me Thinks

The Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the Civil War, methinks.

Anyone who uses this ridiculous “word” is out of my country, I think.

No Soup For You, Yadda Yadda Yadda, Festivus

I loved Seinfeld, AND, when the show was in prime time, I DID use some of the catchphrases and sayings in my everyday life. BUT THE SHOW ENDED MORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO! Every holiday, some bozo in the office will still go around wishing everyone a happy Festivus. And No soup for you. People will blurt this one out for any situation, even if it makes no sense. Just stop already!

BFF

NO!

Crickets

I asked them what on earth they thought they were doing.  Crickets.

I have sat in complete silence before and actually heard NOTHING.  Not even crickets.

Could hear a pin drop

The visiting team scored five runs in the top of the ninth inning, and you could hear a pin drop.

Even if NONE of the 20,000 people in the stands were talking at that moment, you still wouldn’t be able to hear a pin drop.  Even by the person who dropped the pin.

Fly on the wall

I’d like to be a fly on the wall at that meeting.

No, you probably wouldn’t.  Someone in the meeting might take a fly swatter to you and then continue with their meeting like nothing happened.
