you are SO right!
but awareness will prevent disappointments!
My TT is up as well :)

Comedy Plus

Well, I'm in my 50's and can still relate to all of these. You are just getting started. Have a great TT. :)


Awesome list! Completely agree with you on these!

Irreverent, Barefoot Ragamuffins

I don't really believe any of these either! Its funny how often people say fluff just for the sake of having something to say.

Please visit my TT this week. Its 13 prizes (and more) that you can win in a contest that benefits a very special little boy named Parker.

Happy TT!


Great so true. HappyTT.

The Crux & Damozel

A great list---we especially love the cool graphic at the top of the list!

Ha! I've always had an excellent bullshit detector, but as I get older it gets more and more finely honed, and boy oh boy, it goes off when I hear those phrases, too. (ACK!)

Great list! Happy TT, and thanks for visiting mine. :)


Hey those were brilliant and so true! I have not even got around to doing my Thursday Thirteen yet. I am having total brain drain. Duh. :o)

Love your Thursday Thirteens, I look forward to them.


Oh, dear, I don't believe many of these either. Happy TT!

I may be only 21, but I've already picked up that cynicism that you're talking about. A whole list of weasel words...


I am infamous for saying "I'll call you back" and then not calling. But it's not because I don't want to...I just get caught up in whatever else is going on and I forget. Please don't take it personally when someone doesn't call you back!



Happy TT!

Teena in Toronto

#11 always pisses me off! Ha!

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

Wylie Kinson

You are old and cynical. I hope it's only temporary, and believe me, I wish I could help you. But don't worry, I'll call you back (as soon as the episode of House that everyone will be talking about!) is over and we'll discuss your issues with friendly sales staff. I won't take long and I guarantee your satisfaction, or your money will cheerfully be refunded!


Lol, I've said phrase 1 in the past and meant it, but I know what you mean.


LOL, this was funny... I like this list and even think I agree with it!


Awesome list.

I always mean #12 when I say it, but then, you know, stuff happens....

Wylie Kinson

I just tagged you for a meme -- you'll like this one, I promise!! Go check out my blog for instructions (and read my list VERY carefully!)
