When did you say No !!
When did you say No !!

Only Way To A No !!

I can bet you have said this very same word to more than a thousand or so friends, neighbors or just about anyone who could pay attention to it. Sometimes I think there has to be a better way for someone to understand that when I say this word this is truly what I mean. So it has me thinking how many ways a person can say NO!!

Let’s see

I said no at walking the dog today

I said no at watching you belch

I said no to sitting with you and rewatching a movie for the fifth time

I said no at driving you home drunk last night

I said no at giving you more than you could drink

I said no at smoking your last cigarette

I said no at drinking your last soda

I said no to yelling at you and embarrassing you in front of your friends.

I said no at racing the other car in the next lane who is urging me on

I said no to no

Because just to say no was never enough, there are always other circumstantial factors to say yes.

But this word No does not mean yes as some of you found out, suddenly caught up in its correct definition.

The word NO truly amazes me because when said in any other languages the word does not change its character, syllable or its indifference. It means what it means and that is No. Why people work diligently at not wanting to hear its meaning or wanting to understand its demise is a baffle to me. I do not believe there is any other word which can capture and hold a persons attention in order to grasp its response. How many No’s have you had to say today? To some this word is a very powerful word to digest. This word can have very dire consequences and bring about a drastic response. For some this was the last word they heard as they took it upon themselves to punish the no sayer. This was the word they heard when she said No not tonight. This was the word that was said which started that bad ass fistfight. This was the word said when I turned off those lights. This was the word told to him that couldn’t make things right. I actually like the context of this word as it brings everything into focus and my lips shut tight. This is a word that has no controversy; it is said and used as a deterrence; a last line of defense or providing the person with a moment of peace. No matter what city, town or country a person could be from; this is a word which has crossed all territorial boundaries. It is a word which can have a special meaning to it or a word you’re not determined to hear. It does not matter a word is a word; but this particular word has no other meaning, except just that NO !!

The Word Is No !!

A Must Read Ya No !!

In The NO !!

Do You Think Telling Someone No Is Offensive !!

      It's not so much what you say but how you say it.

      Very rarely are you required to be rude when you reject someone. Circumstances will always dictate the best course of action to take.
