Some days I get up and feel informative, other times I feel curious and then there are my disruptive moods.
Today, I woke up and felt like a wiseacre and that is why I am proud to present the 7 Common Sayings That Don't Work in CT.
Some Common Sayings Just Don't Work in Connecticut, Here Are 7 of Them
I get it, some days you get up without ever really getting up. We all get tired and on those days you're more likely to be basic in an effort to get through the day. However, if you're a robot that spits out clichés all day, people take notice.
There are some clichés that I couldn't find a CT excuse for, but they need to be addressed:
"Living the Dream": You ask someone how they're doing and they return with this gem. Also popular: "I woke up on the right side of the grass" and "I'd complain but who'd listen!"
"Love is Blind": Love may be deaf, but it is most certainly not blind.
"Better Late Than Never": FALSE. If you're late, I'm rooting for you not to show up. If you made me wait, I'm afraid of what I'll say to you so just stay home.
"Read Between the Lines": How about you learn how to write and save us all a lot of trouble. Just spit it out, we all know you can't keep a secret.
"A Little Birdie Told Me": WRONG, we both know it was Janice in Accounting.
"I'm All Ears": This is usually said by someone who is all forehead.
"Anywho": If you have to say this, you made things unbelievably uncomfortable beforehand. Why don't you stop saying weird and intrusive things?
"I Hate to Beat a Dead Horse": This is easily the most psychotic cliché and needs to be retired. What kind of mental patient came up with this?
