Lot’s of folks are gonna give you a little somethin’ somethin’ about St. Patty’s day, so I’m not. Instead, I’m going to talk about the fastest way to hang yourself. And that is in writing. Mark Twain himself has agreed to help me through this one.
Twain lived long before WordPress and all this other tech stuff and way before the widespread use of telephones. The letters he wrote got to and fro mostly Pony Express style, not Federal Express style.
When Twain was mad, he always wrote two letters. One he wrote right then and there. And he always wrote a second one to the same person about the same thing the next day. Not once, in his infinite wisdom, did he ever mail the first letter.
So before you go ahead and press “send” at the heat of the moment, and dash off that nasty note to your boss, co-worker, or anyone else, count to Twain.
Now off to drink beer and talk shit about people. Happy St. Patty’s day. ~Mike
