THINGS EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW BY AGE 40

To continue the thought from yesterday ……
PHRASES WE NEED TO STOP USING _ Part 2 of 2.
• “Same difference.” — So is it the same? Or different? Are the differences between the two things that you’re comparing the same?
• “Let me tell you something.” — Along the lines of, “Can I ask you something?” this phrase is completely needless.
• “I apologize if I made you feel that way.” — Translation: “I refuse to take responsibility for my actions.”
• “My bad.” — This expression makes light of a mistake. Rather than a sincere apology, “my bad” is the verbal equivalent of a shrug.
• “Give 110 percent.” — Not possible.
• “Yeah, no.” — So you mean “no”? If you mean no, just say “no”!

 

THINGS EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW BY AGE 40

• Nothing beats a good night’s sleep
• One’s “career path” can include multiple forks in the road

• Exercise is a wonderful antidote to just about anything
• A good read is a wonderful antidote to just about anything

QUICK JOKE _ Two guys are at a wedding. The first guy says, “When I was younger I hated going to weddings.” The second asks, “Why?” The first says, “Because every time, all of my aunts and the grandmotherly types used to come up to me, poke me in the ribs and cackle, ‘You’re next!’ I finally figured out how to get them to stop. I started doing the exact same thing to them — at funerals.”
