At Least….

8 Mar

One thing that people do that sometimes drives me crazy is the but at least statement.  I believe in finding the good in things but this one stretches the facts a little.

For instance:

She was an absolute harridan with trashy taste but at least she had good skin.

He was a psychotic misanthrope hellbent on revenge but at least he had a very organized filing system.

Maybe I don’t know how to react to these statements.  Should I be feeling good that I’m not around a trashy harridan with eczema?   (Then again an itchy harridan would be even worse I suppose.  Oh no I’ve fallen in the trap!!!!!!)

The problem with at leasts is that they truly are the absolute least.  We can do better than that.
