First, my apologies. I didn’t blog yesterday. Don’t know why. I guess I forgot though that seems hard to believe. Anyway…
“…but things could be worse.” Where in the world does this saying come from? Talk about completely meaningless. If we work this statement out to its logical conclusion in, say, my situation. The line soldier, pinned down in a firefight with no fallback position and no help on the way looks over at his buddy who has already taken a round and says, “well, it could be worse.” Is he now any better off? No. The implied statement here is, “that guy over there has it worse than me so now I feel better about my pathetic situation.” I really don’t understand this statement. I hear it a lot over here.
