Avoid the damaging effects of positive thinking.

Engage in a little negative thinking. What’s the worst that could happen?

The sign reads "Bought".

It doesn't read "Sold".

The distinction caught my eye.

The Sorry Ass

A guy broke a glass in my house. An accident, it slipped between his fingers, fell to the floor and smashed into a zillion pieces.

He got a broom, cleaned up the mess and apologized about five times while he was tidying. It's okay, I told him. It was an accident.

"I'm so sorry," he said.

"Listen to me," I said. "I accepted your apology. Now you're annoying me. If you apologize one more time, I'm going to ask you to leave."

"You're right," he said. "I'm sorry."

He had to go.

"But I said I was sorry!"

Exactly. Once was enough. And I gave you a warning. I don't want your sorry ass in my house.

What makes people over-apologize like this? Don't they know how annoying they are?
