I really hate when I hear people say Look before explaining something. I was taking with a “know it all” who starts just about every sentence with it. It’s done on TV and radio by pundits.

“Look, this is the way it is…”, “Look, if he really wanted to ….”, “Look, blah blah blah…”

When I hear someone start a sentence like this I feel like they are saying… Look you dumb ass, it’s as plain as the nose on your face, and if you had a half a brain, you’d know this.

Consider and Apply
