Gaffe –

1: a social or diplomatic blunder

2: a noticeable mistake

This is going to be a short entry but lately I’ve been posting like Wilt Chamberlain so I’ll keep it up.

As I sat by the sink, watching a half keg of Coors light go down the drain, because that’s all we finished for New Years, I began to wonder how this atrocity had occurred.  I don’t leave alcohol unfinished, ever.  That is a trademark I live by.  However, I’m not going to drink out of a keg that’s been moved outside to inside just because I can.  Now it also damages me to return a keg that is only half finished, so rather than put my pride on the line at the beer store, I empty the keg and return it.  As I watched the beer trickle down, I began to wonder why on Earth we got a 100 dollar keg of Coors Light instead of a 60 dollar keg of Natty Light.  As it started to come back to me, I remember CK4 telling me it’s only 10 dollars each split 3 ways.  Now as I really started to think about it, CK4 wouldn’t even drink out of the keg and Evan probably consumes 6+ beers (the only people who’d prefer Coors Light to Natty).  As I remember suggesting getting Natty light while in line, because no one can tell the difference, it pained me to not only be ridding myself of beer but more expensive beer at that.  Me, the alcoholic should be making all decisions when it comes to drinking.  Any opinions on what % of people would notice the difference between Coors keg beer and Natty?

My next issue is with repeating.  I’ve made mention of how I try not to use the same words all the time.   This one person I was with would use the phrase “point being” time and time again.  Once you start using a phrase that often, it loses its effect to the point that you are never making a point.  I can’t take you seriously when you have to point out when you’re making a point because I’m not a fucking moron and I know when you’re making a point.  Next example, when I talk to Baker on the phone, I know he uses the phrase “fair enough” when I’m done talking and he understands and he wants to move to a new topic.  It’s not “fair enough” that I start using it when I talk to him.  Also I notice it to when I’ll be on the phone with a customer and he says something and the deal is complete and I say “sounds good” as a conclusion.  Say he has something else to add, he can’t close the conversation with “sounds good,” I already said that previously.  When it’s your turn to communicate, think of something original rather than copying the other person.
