Scary Thank You!

 

The Daily Prompt: Why, Thank You?. What’s the best (or rather, worst) backhanded compliment you’ve ever received? If you can’t think of any — when’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you didn’t actually deserve?

 

When an email reads “Thank you for applying to us…” or “Thank you for taking the examination…”. My heart stops beating. I understand that I have successfully flunked the exam cause more than 70% of the time the following sentence will have a “sorry”!! Truly “Thank You” is my bogey-phrase.

It is the same in real life as well. When your boss or girlfriend starts thanking needlessly you must understand that your time is up. Move on!

Thanks for the “curtsy” our societies breed!

It is not all gloom and doom with Thank You. It is rather hilarious when you are not part of the scene. Today I was reading the thank you notes released by Balotelli and Milan. Milan profusely and eloquently thanked Balotelli for his services. But all those words simply meant, “Thanks Mario. We could finally get rid of You!” LOL

  2. too true 🙂 …generally after such thank you comes…”I regret to inform….”. Its much better if these niceties are avoided…and we receive a straight forward reply.
