Nobody likes people who make hollow promises, especially when their bodies are anything but hollow. Do yourself a favor, the next time you're eating a pizza and your friend complains about how out of shape they are, grab the pizza and run. You'll lose both an unwanted friend and a couple of pounds. Win / Win!
Granted there are definitely some movies and shows that everyone NEEDS to see, we understand that, but ridiculing someone for not having seen them is not the way to go about it. First of all, it makes you look like a pretentious jerk with nothing better to do than voraciously consume media, and secondly, it creates an impossible benchmark of quality in their mind that this movie or show will undoubtedly have a very hard time living up to; So in summary: Yes, The Shawshank Redemption is a awesome, but is it worth ruining a friendship over? No. Never.
This phrase has been so violently abused of late that we should all collectively agree to put it out of its misery. It was annoying enough when people said this before stating unpopular or patently wrong statements. But now people say it before sharing any opinion, regardless of how trite and commonplace it is. Oh, you're not gonna lie, you think "moist" is a gross word? Yeah. So does everyone. Say something else now.
This might have been a cool thing to do when writing letters was a common practice, but in a time where Albert Einstein quotes can be copy-pasted directly from Wikipedia and into your email, it just comes off as unnecessary icing on a cake made of arrogance. It's also worth mentioning that it doesn't really matter who or what you're quoting in your signature, because nothing takes the power out of an inspirational quote faster than a company wide email about toilet paper usage.
You know that global warming does not mean that the weather is always warmer, right? Because the sheer number of summertime "See? Global warming" exclamations, and wintertime "Global warming? Yeah right" retorts would seem to prove otherwise. Unless you're just saying stuff like that in a desperate attempt to make weather-related smalltalk with strangers in the elevator. That's even worse.
