A Simple Guide On When It’s Okay To Say “But Her Emails!”
You’ve probably noticed that “But her emails!” is a pretty popular response to a lot of stuff these days. But DID YOU KNOW that it’s not always the best response? When is it appropriate to use? When is it relevant to the conversation? Don’t worry, I broke it down for you guys in a simple, easy-to-read DO or DON’T list. Share it with your friends, family, and that guy on Facebook whose profile picture is just a picture of a gun! (Gun guy, surely you must be more than just a gun. Come on.)
THE DO’S AND DON’TS OF SAYING “BUT HER EMAILS!”
When someone is complaining about Denise, that coworker who’s kind of annoying, yet you want to point out that she contributes well to funny group chains.
When you work for Land O’Lakes and it’s the big meeting and you’re pitching a butter-of-the-month club but you didn’t drink enough water so you get a little cottonmouth and as a result you totally mispronounce “Butter Mail”.
When someone is talking about how deeply concerned they are that Trump shared classified intel with Russia, which by the way has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton’s emails.
When someone is talking about how Trump fired James Comey in the middle of the FBI’s Russian investigation, which by the way has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton’s emails.
When someone is criticizing pretty much anything about Trump’s relationship with Russia, which by the way has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton’s emails.
When Anastasia, the story of the lost Russian princess, comes to Broadway and your Mom forwarded you the e-tickets but the box office is having trouble scanning them and they think it might be counterfeit but you know your Mom would never forward you a counterfeit ticket, and by the way you’re Chelsea Clinton so it has everything to do with Hillary Clinton’s emails.
There you have it! Hope this helps! PS who’s excited that Anastasia is coming to Broadway? I hope they sing “Paris Holds The Key To Your Heart”!!!!!!
