Have YOU ever been caught in an awkward moment?

Has your boss just said something that made absolutely no sense?

Ever had a friend decide they just HAD to have those 40 lb. cement turtles being sold by a vendor in Mexico, without a thought as to having to carry them home??

Tired of hearing demanding, unreasonable requests from clients who just don't seem to have brought their clue with them today?

How about a spouse who has a bad habit of bringing home the latest "deals"? You name it!!

Well, I have THE magic word to get you out of any of these situations!! No, I'm not talking about WTF (which unless you're sending a text message, still counts as 3 words). Besides, the powerful word I am about to demonstrate for you can get you out of these situations PAINLESSLY and without repercussions.

Don't believe me? Well, for 3 easy payments of $19.95, you too can have the rights to use the word, "HUH!!" Now, please don't confuse this mighty word with the connotation often expressed with in the form a question (damn you Alex Trebek).

Huh? That's the wrong inflection and can only lead to trouble, or looking like an ignorant putz.

HUH!! It's the magic word with the hidden mojo. Think about using it as, "HUH! I hadn't thought of that before", or "HUH! What an interesting choice". The art of this word is making sure you say the word WITHOUT sounding like "Insert WTF here!!"

For example:
Client - Grandy, we want you to jump through this flaming hoop...backwards...on your head...while shoving knives into your eyes.
Grandy - HUH!!
***What they hear is, "HUH! That sounds like an interesting challenge!"
***What you mean is, "HUH! You truly think I get paid enough to wipe your butt??"

Girlfriends - WE BOUGHT TURTLES!!!
Grandy - HUH!!
***What they hear is, "HUH! Why didn't I think of that?"
***What you mean is, "HUH! What the hell for??" or "On Purpose??"

Hubby - I have no clean pants to hear.
Grandy - HUH!!
***What he hears is, "HUH! That's unfortunate, let me get that taken care of."
***What you mean is, "HUH! Well, that wouldn't be the case if you'd either wash some yourself, or tell me about it before you run out (while you're rubbing my feet)." Wait, that one really becomes too much of a fantasy.

I think you get my point. You should try it!! It's amazing how many people I've turned on to that one little word, because it works!!!

You'll will allow you to escape any awkward situation with your job, marriage, and pride in tact. Try it for 30 days...or your money back!!

Huh? I'm going to try it. The one I use a lot when I'm stumped, angry, sad, horrified is, "I'll be darned." It works pretty well too.

Grandy said...

Thank you for your kind words. I have been told that, and would love to, but don't know where to begin.

Mrs. G,
I can't believe the number of comments you get posted on your blog every day lately. I'm truly honored, and "I'll be darned".

Why don't you try Constant-Content as a place to start submitting short articles. I wrote all about it on my post today.
