Networking Nonsense That Makes Me WRITE IN CAPITALS!!!!!


The year might be almost ended, but the ridiculous and humorous things I hear at networking meetings doesn’t end just because the calendar is about to.

Here are four more:

Power of attorneys — Like with mothers-in-law and similar words, this is a common mistake. But the reason I mention this is that AN ATTORNEY SAID THIS!!!!

An electrician who fixes Christmas trees — No, the electrician fixes the lights that are on the Christmas trees. A lumberjack (“I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK”) fixes the trees. Or a tree surgeon.

Hi, I’m (name) and I’m actually a virtual chef — I removed his name to save his embarrassment. Actually a virtual chef? So, you mean you actually are not formally recognized as a chef? THEN WHY ARE YOU AT A NETWORKING MEETING SELLING YOURSELF AS SUCH?

I want to say something really quick — And then he spoke for a minute.

Until next time! Use the right words!
