Plea to Public Speakers and Politicians

Posted by bsflag2007 on Thursday, December 6, 2007

Just a short note from the deportment police to all public figures:

Please….please…. please…..

Do NOT preface ANY comment, argument, or statement with the word -(or admonishment) – “LOOK….”.

    Senora Cindy-
    Why do you say this? Why? Inquiring illegals want to know?

    Personal pet peeve. “Look, …..” and its cousin “Listen, ….” are just offensive to me …. it feels condescending and dictatorial when what they are trying to be is persuasive.

    Chalk it up to the power of early training. I was taught that it was impolite to tell people to “look” or “listen” unless it was an emergency.

    Is this just a general observation, or did you attend or see and event where the “L” and the other “L” word were used?

    -I heard a lot of l and l the other day here locally but it isn’t just one person and it isn’t just local.

    I won’t single any individual out at this time — the worst offenders probably have no idea or may not agree with my opinion of this affectation. Hopefully once it is pointed out some of our local public figures (at least) will reconsider this approach.

    Now if we could get people to stop saying they “feel badly” …. I mean, unless their fingers really have lost sensation.)
