Some people don’t have enough time on their hands to come up with an original comment

July 30, 2005

For obvious reasons, I’ve had people utter the following phrase to me more times than I can count: “Somebody has way too much time on their hands.” While I’m not defending the efficient use of my time or lack there of, I’d just like to point out that using this phrase is like admitting to having zero sense of originality or humor. After saying it, you might as well head straight to the video store to rent one of the several movies where Tim Allen dresses up as Santa Claus.

As if the phrase wasn’t lame enough on it’s own, it is usually accompanied by smugness and self-satisfaction. It often seems as if the speaker is waiting for a high-five from the captain of the high school football team after tossing in such a cleverly placed comment. This same person usually regurgitates other phrases of similar caliber, such as “Sounds like a personal problem.” or “If I told you, I’d have to kill you.”…which always end up with the other people in the room muttering an uncomfortable, fake laugh.
