SINCE IT NEVER DOES!
It is time that someone confront this very commonly used phrase. The phrase “it goes without saying” needs to be spoken about. Well, if it wasn’t for me this would continue on in lingual limbo. It is very common for someone to use the phrase “it goes without saying” and following it with an explanation or reason to justify why something that does not need to be said be spoken about. Listen! I’m trying my best to understand this language (my 1st), and write it properly. There is no need for these phrases to add to my confusion. If it “goes without saying” —— THAT SHOULD BE THE END OF THE STATEMENT, NO?!?!?!?
LET ME ADD TO THE LIST OF SAYINGS THAT ARE FRUSTRATING
- YOU HAVE NO IDEA –
- YOU DIDN’T KNOW –
- YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN –
- WHAT DID YOU EXPECT –
- YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING –
- IT SHOULD BE CLEAR BY NOW –
- DO I REALLY NEED TO TELL YOU –
- YOU’RE NOT GOING TO WANT TO HEAR THIS –
- YOU CAN’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU –
- YOU DIDN’T WANT TO LISTEN –
- I TRIED TO TELL YOU –
I’LL START WITH THOSE!
LET ME PUT TOGETHER A LITTLE RANT ON THOSE SAYINGS- JUST FOR FUN!
DO I REALLY NEED TO TELL YOU? — I guess I better, so YOU CAN’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU!
I wouldn’t want you to be in a position that YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING
After I TRIED TO TELL YOU, I assumed it would be CLEAR BY NOW, maybe, YOU DIDN’T WANT TO LISTEN, OR ONLY HEARD WHAT YOU WANTED TO HEAR!
At first, I DIDN’T WANT TO BE THE ONE TO SAY, and even told you that you HAVE NO IDEA.
Knowing you WEREN’T GOING TO WANT TO HEAR THIS, I couldn’t leave this as something THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING
I was not going to be responsible for an accusation later on saying YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME / WHY DIDN’T YOU SAY SOMETHING
IF YOU ASK – WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?, OR YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING? YOU BETTER MAKE SURE YOU TOLD THEM WHAT THEY NEED TO KNOW. EVEN IF THEY DIDN’T WANT TO LISTEN TO WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. OR, decided to HEAR WHAT THEY WANTED TO HEAR. At least now you can say these with conviction —
YOU CAN’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU
YOU DID’T WANT TO LISTEN
I TRIED TO TELL YOU
