Things that sound good
    #2413449 - 03/10/04 03:09 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

In Japan, there are rigorous written laws and standards that everyone pretends to follow, but don't. If there is a disagreement in a business meeting, no matter how absurd, neither party will address it. They will agree, but they won't hold their end of the bargain up.

This got me thinking about things that sound good, but aren't practical or true. I say these things to myself, and I bet you have said some of them to. Here are some of my favorites:

I don't judge people's appearances.

I don't care what people think about me.

If I won the lottery, I would give most of it to charity.

If I was won the lottery, I would still work.

When I die, I don't want people to mourn my death.

If he said that to me, I'd kick his ass.

Yes officer, I was wearing a seatbelt.

I don't hold grudges.

I forgive and forget.

I'm going to start recycling.

Tomorrow I will start the diet.

After I finish this pack, I will quit.

If my boss does that one more time, I'm telling him off.

If this happens again, I am quitting.

I work better under pressure.

I drive better stoned.

I drive better after two beers.

White lies are okay.

It's okay if I do it.

They're a big corporation, they won't miss this.



Feel free to contribute or discuss why we say things like this. You have my permission.

It's not you, it's me.

This hurts me more than it hurts you.
