NO MORE 3rd PERSON!?

Is there ever an appropriate time to talk about yourself in the third person? NO. It's annoying and off, and it makes me uncomfortable.

Would Jen be annoying to you if she started blogging in third person? Would you not like Jen to do that anymore? No! Because she would sound like a creepy sex offender. Sorry, I'm really tired. Here's how it went......

I was waiting to take a man's order when he asks me about the seabass:

"Oooh...Seabass. He's never ordered that before. How is it?"

Who's never ordered that before? I seriously thought he was talking about his son. It wasn't until he CONTINUED to talk in third person that I realized he was talking about himself.

"I think the lobster rissotto might upset Mike's stomach. He'll have the 7oz Pepper Steak instead."

Comin' right up, Mike..... I wanted to ask "Does Mike want Soup or Salad with His steak?" But I didn't.

he might have been a Marine... at boot camp we had to refer to ourselves in the third person. now that was weird. or he might be royalty, like how the queen of england always says "we find this displeasing..."

*grin*

any way... this iron chef has finished writing his post regarding blogs and privacy. he hopes you find it informative, because it is a topic that has been much on his mind...

I reaaly think Jeff would love to be sited on your blog. Good post. I hope you don't mind if Jeff blogrolls you as well. The 7oz. pepper steak sounds divine.

Jeff: Please do blogroll me! Once I figure that out...I'll do the same for you!

Iron Chef: I finally found my trick for going to sleep! Reading your blog about safety! lol. You start to read..VERY INTERSTING...scroll once...hmmm...scroll THRICE!? haha I'm kidding. It was long, but VERY informative! I greatly appreciate your advice and wisdom. :)

Have you ever seen Joe Dirt? Well..there is a part on there where they are playing on "Silence of the Lambs" and some WEIRDO is telling Joe Dirt to "put the lotion on its skin!" THat's third person....and that's all I can think of when other people do it.

Jennifer said...

Jennifer agrees. She finds the third person so annoying. She really likes your blogs though.

I would have been tempted to rap him on the head to bring him back to reality. You are obviously a saint.

Memphis Steve said...

Hmm, Nude Memphis Steve just found your blog and he thinks it's pretty good.

Talk about sounding like a sex offender. Try doing that with 'nude' in your name.

The underhill only has one person to speak of.
