I love pop culture. Even If I do not regularly watch a television show, I know about its latest plot. I stay as up-to-date as possible. It’s good to know about pop culture as it helps in random situations and gatherings. If you hit that seven minute conversation lull, just bting up Kim Kardeshian and Kanye West. Trust me there is much to unpack there. But that is for another day.
Let’s talk about the here and now. Although I do not watch any of the Housewives reality shows, I catch tidbits here and there. One such tidbit is as follows from a New York housewife.
“Say it, forget it.”
“Write it, regret it.”
This bit of wisdom holds true both in the professional and personal realm. Watch what you say. Be even more careful what gets memorialized in writing. Of course, we all some people go around recording others. However, there are certain state laws that may hinder that. Nonetheless, maybe you should go around in the workplace thinking that people are recording you. There’s many toxic, out-to-get-you people.
In any case, do yourself a favor and watch what you write. Often, there’s no coming back from that.
