Seven Things Networkers Should Never Say


George Carlin had this “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television.” I have these seven things networkers said but shouldn’t have.

You need to be page one of Google for better or worser — I would much rather be found on page one of Google, for better or worse. (I choose better; this writer didn’t.)

We’re donating proceeds to the devastation down South — I would much rather have my proceeds donated to the people who suffered in the devastation down South.

When there’s no traffic, the drive literally goes faster — Thank you for stating the obvious.

We’re hosting the first-ever marathon. It’s only a 5k — Then it isn’t a marathon, is it? A marathon is 26 miles, 385 yards. A 5-kilometer run is 3.1 miles. Big difference.

And first-ever is redundant.

You’re getting your ticket comped. Like Compton — No, getting your ticket comped means it’s free. No disrespect to Compton intended; I have yet to meet the person who calls Compton “free.”

I don’t think I can say free — You just did.

I represent over a bunch of insurance companies — When you don’t know, fake it.

Until next time! Use the right words!
