NO, NO, NO!!!


Sometimes I get so angry. Why do people misspeak? Why do they use the wrong words? If they’d only hire me, I could fix their problems (and get paid regularly, which would make me happy).

Her financial advisor literally screwed her and took most of her money — NO, NO, NO!!! Her financial advisor figuratively screwed her and took most of her money. If it was literal, it would mean something different altogether.

Official unlicensed bootleg merchandise — NO, NO, NO!!! Merchandise can’t be official and unlicensed. Plus, unlicensed and bootleg could be synonymous.

One cockroach is a hundred too many — NO, NO, NO!!! One cockroach is one too many. A hundred cockroaches are a hundred too many. And so on.

Thank you for all the informative information — NO, NO, NO!!! That’s redundant.

Until next time! Use the right words!

How unreal can this be? There are too many ways to count. It boggles my mind.

The email address is phony; Trump wouldn’t use a gmail or yahoo email address. The capitalization errors are numerous. There has been no news that the president has had anything to do with the African nation Benin in his 100-plus days in office.

I actually want to call the phone numbers but am afraid to.

Please, please, please, nobody believe this.

Until next time! Use the right words!
