Things People Say


I’ve been thinking about some of the things that people say. For instance, have you ever thought about what you’re actually saying when you say something like:

“Above Optimal Level”

If it’s above the optimal level, then it’s no longer optimal, right? If being “above” the optimal level is better than being at the optimal level, then that level should be the optimal level. You also can’t say better than optimal either. Just don’t say the “above” part and you’ll be golden.


What about this one:

“Everything, for the most part.”

As in, “I found everything, for the most part.” Well, if you found everything, then what do you mean by “the most part?”

How about this one:

Now more than ever…

Exactly what does that mean? Does that mean that it really wasn’t important until now or does it mean that it behooves you to do this now because there will be consequences if you don’t.

What are some other sayings?
