I just thought of an expression that (thankfully) I have only heard once - But, it changed the world as I knew it. It was easily one of the stupidest phrases ever uttered.

I was standing in line at Starbucks when a lady walked up to the counter and asked the clerk with a straight face...

"If I were sugar, where would I be?"

I haven't stepped foot in a Starbucks since.

rut roh, steer clear of me, because i've been using the "if i were [blank], where would i be" phrase forever. mostly in reference to my car keys...

the other utterance i enjoy blurting out is "who would tell me, how would i know?" a phrase i heard at a Dr. W. Edwards Deming conference.

When people gripe about someone else's poor grammar and then use "loose" when they mean "lose" - that's when I lose it!


Haa! My bad...oops
