Ya’ll know that certain words and phrases turn me into a crazed lunatic which isn’t too far off a stretch. Today’s phrase is “end of story”. Although it is a classic way to end an argument, I think it only works for women. “Whatever” is also a good one. my dad had the best one. If we were bantering back-and-forth about a certain product or service he would end every argument with “well that’s what￼ the pros use”.￼￼￼
I despise “end of story” because it leaves you with nothing to say. It’s usually a wife, husband or boss at work who uses that phrase the most. I used to have a boss who would say that all of the time. One time though, when he said that I said “So in conclusion, I’m right and you’re wrong.”
As you might imagine, he was pretty upset that I trumped his phrase because even though the story is over there is almost always a conclusion. he was almost as angry as Alec Baldwin with the paparazzi. I never got good reviews after that. It was time to move on, and he smiled when I gave him my notice and said, yeah you got it “end of story”￼. Well played boss man, well played ￼indeed.￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
I think I’m going to start my own ridiculous phrases. Why not? They ￼will be passed down￼ throughout generations. I’m just kind of thinking out loud right now, but how about “Oh yeah? Well you are a sissy.￼” or maybe, “your fly is open”. I’m sure I’ll think of a lot more and you might think it’s a waste of time but I don’t. End of story.
