Oh, man. “I told you so” is one of the most action-packed phrases of all time. As the Modern Manners Guy aptly said: “I told you so” is the equivalent of kicking a person when they’re down, pouring salt on a wound, or getting a group of people together to laugh and point at someone…… Continue reading Resisting Saying “I Told You So”
