Scary Mommy Says Don't Say "Can't You Just."
Scary Mommy tells the worse phrase to use with an already busy mother. That phrase is "Can't you just." Being a man, and always wanting to give advise, this is something I say--often. Not only to my wife, but to other family members. I don't think I use it outside the family at all; but it is a manipulative phrase as I try to get my way. Normally, it is used as a phrase to maybe give ideas and enlighten someone else. However, if someone's plate is already overloaded, it really isn't helpful. Read the blog post and tell me what you think.
