Never Say of the Day #1

June 21, 2011 § Leave a comment

Never say, “A good time was had by all.”

No matter how wonderful you felt at the school carnival/office picnic/neighborhood BBQ and douchefest, I guarantee you that someone there was hating it.

Try instead, “It was okay. Some attendees enjoyed themselves while others were secretly burning up inside, consumed by their various jealousies, fears, and insatiable longings. Still others are just so emotionally numb at this point in their lives, it is questionable whether they will ever have a good time again, anywhere, doing anything. We did our best to plan a nice event. (Although a few people on the committee could have tried harder.) It went as well as could be expected. We’ll probably do it again next year, and it will probably be very similar.”
