Are You Filled With Hot Air?


I am probably going to ruffle some feathers with this post. Not because I want to but I am just going to be truthful with you. Many people don’t really want to hear the truth.

When someone asks you how they look for the most part they really don’t want the truth. They want you to tell them that they look good and your agreeing with them makes them happy. If you tell them their hair looks like a birds’ nest they won’t be happy with you so you just lie to them. If you do that you are filled with hot air.

The other day I was in a gas station paying for gas. I ask the person if they were having a great day to which they replied I am having a great day, how about you? Because I was having a bad day I said things aren’t going very well. The roof is leaking the insurance doesn’t want to pay and I just plain don’t feel good.

That wasn’t the answer they wanted and they didn’t know how to reply. He started to reply with that is great but stopped short when he didn’t get the answer he was expecting. This opened up the discussion and I found out he wasn’t having a good day either.

You ought to just try being honest and not fill the air with that hot stuff that really isn’t how you feel.

I do want to say that you need to use a bit of tack because if your wife asks does this outfit make me look fat you don’t want to reply with a straight out Yes. Use a bit of tack and don’t start world war III but don’t blow a room full of hot air.

I hope this was a help to you who are filled with hot air.
