FROM AUTHOR HARRY N. MACLEAN

Most Annoying Behaviors

It’s a tough choice, but my favorite is when the person you’re talking with goes on and on about something not very interesting and then says “To make a long story short. . . .” I  want to say, no, no you can’t say that, not after you’ve already spent five minutes talking about it.  I suspect the person saying this has just realized how boring the story is and wants to reassure the listeners that it really won’t go on for the next twenty minutes, but why doesn’t he just wrap it up, rather than drag it out further by saying “To make a long story short. . . ?”
