Professional Tip #1- In a debate…please don’t use this phase…it makes you look STUPID!

I ‘m in a discussion where in response to a question about the logic of another participants use of the term “common sense”, someone chimed in with: “You need a serious review of your medication sir and I kid you not.”

The “I kid you not.” really isn’t adding much…do you agree?

This is the ultimate ZINGER in a debate amoung fellow professionals. It helps gain the confidence of your reader.  It shows you’ve thought through your position and can defend it…NOT!

File this in the MAJOR FAIL! drawer.
