Hello Everyone!

How is your Wednesday morning going for you!? Did you sip on that morning coffee yet? Am I actually the first thing that you read this morning?? If so, I’m super honored and I hope you get a laugh whenever you read this blog post. I hope your day is absolutely fruitful and rewarding for you! Enjoy that experience today that is for the first time in your entire life. Before I forget to mention it (just kidding!), please connect with my son John Collazo on his social media that is under his name for his “Call To Action Marketing” #CTAMarketing brand that he is building. For this blog post, I’m sharing with you a dose of my signature Leslie-style, custom crafted construction chick advice. This Quora question is about when is the appropriate time to use the phrase, “shut up”? I find the phrase “shut up” to be very rude. I may have rarely used it in my life. I more than likely have said it while emotionally charged or angry. I’m sure I have said it a handful of times to my sons over the years after losing my patience. I’ve damn sure said it to an annoying co-worker either in a very serious manner or joking. I’m sure I have also felt very bad shortly after my anger and/or frustration has worn off. The older I get, the more I have learned to avoid using the phrase. At the end of the day, you shouldn’t let people hold your emotions hostage. That is a form of control that is not good to hand over to others. If I use it while joking, I try to be as dramatic with the delivery as possible. The whole facial expression and hand gestures add to the spice and sting of delivery. How often do you tell others to shut up? Any regrets after it leaves your lips? Have you managed to go through life never ever saying it out loud? Unless you’re a toddler, I don’t believe you. Grade school kids are probably the biggest offenders of uttering this mild form of obscenity. Let me know your pre-thoughts that form before using this rude phrase? How do you view the advice? Let me know if you think this phrase is not offensive to you and your culture? I’d even love to hear if it is considered highly offensive in your culture? Go ahead and read the posed question and my advice on the phrase down in the comment section below:

POSED QUESTION:

“What is the appropriate time to say “shut up”?”

By Gary Davis

MY RESPONSE:

“Technically, a person can say shut up any time they want to do it. At Thanksgiving dinner with the family, in a crowd of strangers in Times Square, on 5PM rush hour train, in a heated discussion with a co-worker, to your grandmother, at a funeral, etc. The choice is yours!! Now, the question is when is it more strategic? In the age of the internet, people can hide behind their computer and get away with being more bold with their position versus being in a face to face conversation. If you are actually being strategic about it, I give you much credit. Many people think without speaking- no bueno. Before saying something that you can’t take back, ask yourself what are the long term consequences of holding this position? Can the person hurt you financially? Physically? Emotionally? Once a phrase is uttered, it can change how a person views you in life. This simple phrase can make a person biased against you on unrelated future matters. Only you hold the key to that answer. I’m cautious about doing that in my professional life since I don’t want the long term harm. However, I’m surrounded by cowboys who give zero fux about the short term or the future. I always tell my sons do whatever you can live with and stick by if your feet were metaphorically held to the fire. If you talk $hit over the internet and act like a scared kitten in person, society and I will look at you sideways like a clown. I wish you luck on determining your strategy. #ConstructionTales”

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
