Short and sweet this morning… This should be the mantra, motto and the credo for all politicians and lawyers!
if “I don’t remember”
but never, give a yes
or a no.
For as hard
as you try
you won’t outrun
It’s far better to say
“I don’t know.”

One of my past principals standard answer on this topic was “I’ll get back with you on it “. He usually never did.
Hoping of course you would forget about it or get the solution/answer from someone else. Right?
I think those three little words are so hard for most people. They think it makes them stupid. In fact it makes them smart and even smarter if they add…But I’ll find out… And do! 😀
I’ve found over the years that it is easier to say them than to try to B.S. your way through a situation. And it is far better to appear to be ignorant than to be proven stupid.
oh so true!
I have always preferred this than Impractical reality.
Impractible reality..That’s practically real.
