Another from here:

“You’re overthinking it.”
So, the solution to problems and questions is to not think about them—?
That explains much about many people.

Surely one of the most idiotic statements uttered by a human being.




“Most men … can seldom accept the simplest and most obvious truth if it … would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions … which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabrics of their lives.”
— Leo Tolstoy

"Quit resisting, quit resisting; hands behind your back." I've always hated that phrase.







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

“I’m Nicholas, and I’ll be taking care of you today”

No thanks Nick, just bring me my lunch. I can wipe my own ass.


And from a lunch companion: “I’ll do a Cobb Salad”.

How about you just eat one, or have one?

Going to take a leak, take a piss, take a crap,

Just where the hell are you going to take it, home? to the park?, over to visit your parents?

How does that work out?

Hey mom, check it out, I brought my mid day turd over with me!

Waitress: Do you want change?

Why would you ask given the cost and payment extended? You want to keep $9.00 as your tip? Up yours.

This is a blatant attempt to make me feel like a cheap skate if I say yes.

The charge for the meal was $11.00. I gave her a $20.00 bill to pay for it.

Do I want change?

Yes, numbskull and now you don't get any tip though I was going to give you a good one, until you pulled that cheesy bit of grifting.

I have a lifelong friend who replies to this.

"I have a good one, I'd rather have a long one!"




"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Non life threatening injuries. Frequent phrase used by news broadcasters. I prefer major or minor injuries or treated and released.

"Whatnot"

And some one saying "uh huh "after every sentence I speak.

And any kind of repetitious word.

I had rather love the silence than slang.

Repeating the wording of a commercial tv/radio phrase as if you originated it and then look like you want praise for being witty.

Sorry, the closest you'll come to wit is to be a nit-wit...

All of these from one memo.

Corporate speak is irritating as a whole.

Only if used by someone who is not a psychologist or psychiatrist. It is frequently misused by lay people. Calling someone Bipolar is another one if used by a nonprofessional.

Sounds like you haven’t had the frustrating experience of working with an engineer with an extreme case of OCD. Initial idea is good but the longer they “what if?” it the worse it gets as they begin preventing high unlikely scenarios like an asteroid strike.

“Not to belabor the point”

In the history of man, I doubt someone has ever shut up at the end of that phrase. They ALWAYS belabor the point so using the phrase just wastes even more time. I think they latched onto the phrase just so they can spew more hot air.
