Lying Loopholes and, as such, I simply can’t get enough of them: they are so useful!!!
- “So, what are the takeaways?” = Please please please please do not go into detail.
- “I’m processing all of this” = I am stalling on a response b/c I think you are a nutjob and am wondering how to most effectively filter
- “I want to be true to myself” = I don’t care about anyone else (this isn’t always 100% true but often is).
- “The ways to search, find and evaluate people on LinkedIn are architected entirely differently than on Facebook.” = sophisticated stalkers know how to leverage multiple platforms.
I used to reserve most of my geek love for economists….but rhetoricians are starting to move up!
Note, "processing" can also mean endless group therapy or avoidance of necessary confrontation in lieu of dealing with one's problems!
It's often hard telling someone you think he or she is crazy, but much like skydiving, it gets a lot easier after the first time.
