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
OH HERE WE GO
Hopefully it is clear by now, my complete and absolute hatred of the language and words! This is not a result from being uneducated(I think the colleges should reimburse us) but thats another topic!….. Even my poor writing skills (openly admit and am aware of) can not be fully or mostly responsible for this…..
.HOW COULD ANYONE REALISTICALLY COMPREHEND THIS LANGUAGE? Is it only me and my limited literary skills that I find it completely ridiculous and aggravating that the meaning of words are (inconclusive) through definitions? Almost every word is defined by multiple words, each of the defining words have a somewhat different directional meaning themselves. It’s difficult enough for someone like me (with little or no writing skills) beyond psychology papers…. But, those were mostly constructed through precise and specific words created by the field of study and only need to use some “regular” language or words to connect/fill in. Also, we didn’t lose that many points at all for writing skills, grammar —– they only were interested in the content material and information.
You could almost say something like —— It is by the no way thank of thought to assume presumable no doubts that prefrontal cortex function is directly involved in processing — lol YES MY UNDERLINE PORTION WAS MAYBE A LITTLE EXTREME OF EXAMPLE ( BUT AS LONG AS WHAT IS BOLD, AND THE ACTUAL INFORMATION IS OK, THAN SADLY THEY WOULDN’T CARE OR PENALIZE YOUR GRADE ENOUGH TO MAKE IT SEEM NECESSARY TO LEARN HOW TO WRITE PROPERLY)
Let me choose some words for example (not going to get into grammar , structure) Just a few words or statements
I’m going to try my best to “act naturally” (how can you be natural if your acting?)
Let me be clear that I’ll always try to provide “original copies” (copies- original? need i say more)
It is starting to get “pretty ugly”
Simple——- is defined “understood, no difficulty” also defined as “abnormally low intelligence” So, something simple is understood without difficulty but, a simple mind might not be able to…..
Understood? Just as long as you realize the definition of “understood” doesn’t mean “you get it” you may understand something, as long as you are aware that if you understand you don’t “know”—- because the definition of understanding something refers to you only perceiving — blah blah OK I’m done for now, before I get sick….. lol
I’m sure many people are familiar with that phrase. “The whole 9 yards”. But I wonder how many people actually know where that saying comes from. I thought it had something to do with football lol
actually it is referring to the us navy hellcat fighter airplane that had 6 .50cal guns which the ammunition belt loaded onto it contained 400 rounds and the belt was 9 yards in length.
So if I pilot unloaded all he had into a target or enemy plane he was giving them the “whole 9 yards”
