Are you sitting down?

As a long-time "friend of last resort" I find that the more drastic phone calls all start with "Thank god you're home (or awake)". That usually precedes some emergency that won't be completely resolved before the next sunrise.
The savior of billions (Norman Borlaug) dying barely rated a mention in the news this year. Farrah Fawcett wore a bikini well back in the 70s and she got international coverage. Good job, society.

I had a potential employer say to me during an interview "How do I say this sensitively...?" Now, THAT'S bad news.










'Course, I got the job, so it wasn't that bad.

You can't forget the "We need to talk" either.
The bananas got bored of pajamas.

Usually that's only half the sentence. The full is "We need to talk (about something you don't want to talk about)."

Or "I need some space(without you in it)." I heard that in a Jeff Foxworthy standup.

"We need to talk" is code for "Shut up and listen".

Only in the sense of "I've already decided, so here's the way it's going to play out..."
