Communication Tip #15
You Don’t Say!
We speak in negatives without realizing it. We say such things as:
- He couldn’t care less.
- I’ll see if I can’t drop by.
- It wouldn’t hurt to buy some milk and eggs.
- That’s nothing short of a miracle.
- We couldn’t ask for better friends.
- That’s awfully nice.
- That’s not half bad.
I’ve spent a half year compiling a list of negative phrases. (What fun!) Check out my newest blog entitled “You Don’t Say!” click on the blog tab.
You’ll be amazed at what you are actually saying! (I was!)
