However, he has asked me to ask everyone I know—myself included, needless to say–to stop saying stupid things.
Here’s not only his list, but “at the end of the day,” why he can’t stand hearing them anymore:
“At the end of the day.”
Translation: Right now, I’m in the dark.
“Deal with it.”
Translation: I’m not.
“Pay it forward.”
Translation: Take the money and run.
Translation: To get more.
“It’s all about you.”
Translation: Make it all about me?
“I’m getting on with my life, leaving this behind me, moving on.”
Translation: Fuck you. AND it’s all your fault. AND none of it’s mine.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Translation: Nor do I want to.
Translation: Either you’re afraid to say anything, or I’m afraid to hear it.
“I care about you.”
Translation: Duck. Run for cover. Look out..
Translation: I’m a snob. (I hate rejects like me.).
“We’re moving forward.”
Translation: We’re going backwards. No questions allowed.
