Stuff I Wish You’d Quit Saying: “Don’t Text and Drive.” I have a better suggestion. Don’t text and do anything else. Ever. If you feel the need to text, it should have your whole attention.

Stuff I Wish You’d Quit Saying: I’m Sorry, But…

Stuff I Wish You’d Quit Saying: I’m Sorry, But… Worse still, “I am sorry you…” I literally just did this. “I am sorry you…” This is not an apology. Just be sorry.
