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………
Haters gonna hate
I HATE this saying.
You see this a lot on the competitive sports field. Someone makes a mistake, and they pat their chest with their hand and say, “My bad.” I remember watching my son’s soccer team one time and this one player kept screwing up and doing this. I wanted to scream, “Stop fu#$&ng up!”
Imagine if this could get us out of all our indiscretions? What if I robbed a bank, got caught by the police, and thumped my chest, saying, “My bad?” Am I to be set free?
Instead of simply saying, “Goodbye.” Mind numbing.
“So, I said to myself, ‘Self…….’
Stupid is as stupid does
Speaking of stupid. Forrest Gump came out in 1994! Stop!
Here’s your sign
This one was actually witty when Bill Engvall came up with it. Even he is retiring. We should retire the saying, as well.
Too much on my plate
You hear this one a lot in business. “I can’t possibly take on another project! I’ve got too much on my plate as it is!”
Work is not food! You cannot simply scrape the unwanted excess into the garbage! And you probably do not have too much work to do. All of the time spent complaining could be used to do some of the work.
