Which way should they rub you?

Every time I hear someone say “He/She rubs me the wrong way.”, I think,”If you are unhappy with the way they rub you, you shouldn’t let them rub you anymore.” Why would you do that? Even if it’s a masseuse, hire someone else.

Seriously, it’s kind of a stupid thing to say. I think it means that they don’t want to like that person but can’t think of a good reason so they say ‘He rubs me the wrong way.’ I think it’s very similar to the phrase, ‘No can do.’ What?

I always think the person just suffered a stroke and call 911. It even takes more effort to just say, “I can’t.” Does ‘No can do’ sound cool? Nope. It sounds ridiculous. I’ve covered many more phrases that are ridiculous and I don’t want to beat a dead horse… That’s another one! Who would want to beat a dead horse? What kind of a sadistic psychopath would want to do that? The animal is already dead and deserves a proper burial. Stop kicking the carcass. Let a dead dog lie… Oh my gosh, there’s another one! I’m calling 911 on myself immediately!

  1. Good point Jerry.
    I’m still trying to figure out
    ‘You can’t have your cake and eat it’….So what do you do with it? Spray it with gloss and keep it as a piece of art???

    PS: While I am here. Will be off the grid for a couple of days more than usual.
    Sheila’s 70th birthday tomorrow 19th July (she hasn’t been well poor kid) and unbeknown to her our daughter Meg is coming for a surprise flying visit and staying Sunday to Tuesday.
    My birthday on 20th July, I being a mere stripling of 69!.
