18 Things To Say To NOT Impress

This life thing ain't a dress rehearsal?

Sometimes I’m happy about that, and other times not so much. I really wish I could earn some “do over” credits from time to time, for good behavior, and then just whip them out as I needed them. You know what I mean?  This thought usually comes to mind when I have failed to be the awesome person that I expect you to be, or I just straight up didn’t reach for the pause button when I should have.

It would be ideal for me to remember that there will be no second takes once the Director calls “Action”, and the golden rule will apply.

You only get one chance to make a good first impression. That’s why it’s important to smile, make eye contact, shake hands firmly, and dress appropriately.

1. “It’s nice to meet you. And, you are who again?”
2. “Um” or “Uh”
3. “How much money do you make?”
4. “Hope you don’t mind that I was late.”
5. “I couldn’t stand my last boss. They were such a jerk.”
6. “Let me be honest.”
7. “I can’t stand this weather.”
8. “No. That can’t be possible.”
9. “Sorry. I got a case of the Mondays.”
10. “Do you believe in God?”
11. “Who are you voting for this November?”
12. “Hun” or “Sweetheart”
13. “Congratulations! When are you due?”
14. “I…I…I…”
15. “Let me tell you about last night…”
16. ‘”I think …/This may be a silly idea …/I’m going to ask a stupid question”
17. “A guy walks into a bar…”
18. “You don’t look like what I expected.”
