I hope I’m not the only one that hates the word but. Ever stop and really think about the use of the word each time you use it?
She’s pretty but. I got you this but. And the famous , I love you but.
Few people stop and think before using that word. Do you ever realize that when you say but, it negates every word that came before it? It’s not just one of those casual 3 letter words that we use to fill up a sentence. It changes the entire aspect of the phrase or conversation.
She’s pretty but. But what? She’s pretty but she’s a jerk? She’s pretty but she’s a drama queen?
I love you but. Hmm that one is really open. I love you but I banged you sister/brother? I love you but I want a divorce? I love you but . . .. (fill in the blank).
But leaves too many options so next time you start to say it, just skip what came before it and instead of I love you but you’re an ass, just say, you’re an ass. I love you doesn’t soften the blow.
Peace out. Signed Slightly
