My name is Leslie M. Jasper and I am the author of the book entitled, Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey to Become an Electrician.  I would be embarrassed having a young person reading my book.  Therefore, I created a teen version of the book.  My edited teen version is entitled, Construction Tales: A Young Person’s Guide to Accomplish Anything in Life.  For the sake of simplicity and the power of hashtags, my book goes by the hashtag #ConstructionTales

#ConstructionTales on Amazon, B&N, iTunes, and Audible
#NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls on Amazon

My first children’s book is entitled, Not All Girls Play With Dolls.  It serves as a prequel to #ConstructionTales.  My illustrator Anastasia Taranenko, who hails from Russia, finished my illustrations despite the stress from the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.  My children’s book went live on Amazon by March 15, 2022.  My books are in paperback, e-book, and audio on the following platforms: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and Audible.  The book was featured, via the Combined Book Exhibit, in a few different book fairs.  I even used my Combined Book Exhibit trailer on the Verbally Disastrous YouTube channel. I write various Kindle Vella short stories under the title, Construction Tales: Told By A Woman in the Kindle Vella Library.

Construction Tales- Told By A Woman: Kindle Vella Short Stories

As I have mentioned before, I am a journeywoman electrician by trade.  I now work as a site safety manager, as an independent contractor, on projects throughout New York City.  I started my electrical career back in 1993 as a Construction Apprentice in the U.S. Navy Seabees.  I then continued my electrical career as an apprentice electrician when I joined Local #3 IBEW since 1995 until today.  I worked with the tools until the year 2014.  During that time, we were still suffering from the effects of the 2008 recession with a huge block- between one to two years of employment between jobs.  I started working in the office via learning autoCAD and engineering with the largest electrical contractor in New York City.  Over time, I got a shot to work as a project manager within a team in the company.  I did PM work for a few other electrical contractors on a variety of short-term projects.  By 2019, I got an opportunity and was encouraged to study and take a series of safety credential exams.  By the end of 2021, I earned my Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST), Associate Safety Professional (ASP), Certified Safety Professional (CSP), and my NYC DOB Site Safety Manager license.

I pulled the trigger on creating The Verbally Disastrous Podcast and releasing my very first episode back on February 08, 2021.  A few people had suggested, over the years, for me to create a podcast since I bring unique perspective.  I didn’t know where or how to even start.  It took some patience and some exploring to actually make it happen.  I am the host, along with my occasional co-host Melissa Polito, of The Verbally Disastrous Podcast With Leslie & MelissaThe Verbally Disastrous Podcast is hosted on Anchor and is available globally on +20 podcast platforms. Some of those major podcast platforms include: Apple Podcasts, Deezer, I Heart Radio, Pandora Podcasts, Radio Public, Spotify, and YouTube.  We are just two random career chicks sharing our thoughts on a variety of topics.  Now that I got a new laptop, I will be working on figuring out how to incorporate video with my podcast episodes.  I need to learn how to go live on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.  Our goal is to make a best effort to try and steer clear of religion and politics!  Those subjects are heavy, fill people with emotion, and just ruins the vibe of a discussion.  Our goal is to find very odd, funny, unusual, and weird topics to discuss.  I have previously laid out some topics that we will discuss in the Season #1, Episode #2 podcast episode.  However, we randomly switch gears with our topics at a moment’s notice.  Why?  Because we are…. Verbally Disastrous!!! 😛

Advice: Meaning Of Turnt Up & Discussing Transactional Relationships

Hello Everyone!

How is life on your side of the globe today? I’m happy that it is Friday and the weekend is here again! What are your weekend plans my friend? It is supposed to be 87 degrees F here in New York City tomorrow. I know I need to enjoy the outdoors tomorrow. Here’s another reminder for you that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. I found out that this book is on Book Goodies website. Check out the link and photo above to check out their website. The same reminder goes for my first adult book entitled, “Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey To Become An Electrician”. I’m delivering yet another double Quora injection for your mind. This first piece of advice for today is regarding a question around the meaning of the term “turn up/turnt”. Since it is the end of the work week, I felt like the theme of alcohol and getting turnt up is appropriate. 🙂 I appreciate those moments where I get opportunities to connect with friends and get turnt up. I can’t stay up super late so my hours of getting turnt up only lasts until 12-1AM the latest. I tend to fantasize about my pajamas and my wonderful bed. I was never much of a party animal in my 20’s either. My second piece of advice is changing gears wildly. This second subject matter is on people who perceive relationships as transactional. I personally think it is best to find out exactly where the person is coming from. Once you know, you know exactly how to proceed. Life is not all roses and fluff; it can be ugly and messy. Knowing is best to help you best prepare in the future. Let me know your thoughts on socializing, either boozing with friends or developing relationships, by dropping your comments in the comment section down below. Let’s get straight into it and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION #1:

“What is the meaning of the expression “turn up/turnt”?”

By Marcelo Philippe

MY RESPONSE #1:

“According to a Business Insider article, the first appearance of “turnt” appeared on “UrbanDictionary” on August 2, 2005. However, the phrase has risen to prominence by being featured in a number of hip-hop songs, beginning in 2008 with Lupe Fiasco’s “Turnt Up” through 2014 when rapper Lecrae released “I’m Turnt.” The expression just means that a person is enjoying themselves tremendously, either solo or with their friends, while sipping on LARGE quantities of alcohol. If you are having fun, be safe and don’t drink and drive. Good luck! #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls”

By Leslie M. Jasper

https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-meaning-of-the-expression-turn-up-turnt/answer/Leslie-Jasper-3?prompt_topic_bio=1

POSED QUESTION #2:

“What does it mean if someone who was very close to you tells you that they only did things for you to get something in return?”

By V Ives

MY RESPONSE #2:

“When someone shares an ugly truth, you damn sure better believe them. Armed with the new data, you then know how to navigate around them accordingly. You now know that they regard your relationship as transactional. Don’t try to take it personal; it’s now a business relationship. It is your choice to continue or stop the relationship. If you are receiving an equal exchange of time and/or money from the other party, then move according to when you are in need of what they have to offer. You are not going to change the mindset of a person who views people as transactions. You can only learn to navigate and treat them like a business dealing. On the other hand, it’s better to know a person’s angle versus being left in the dark about it. If you choose to stop the relationship, it is your choice on whether or not to reveal the root of your decision. At the end of the day, revealing your reason won’t cause any form of change. The only thing that could happen would be unnecessary drama. Therefore, choosing to withhold the root cause of your decision to part ways may be best. I wish you the absolute best on your life path! #VerballyDisastrous #ConstructionTales #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls”

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.

Advice: Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs Question

Hello Everyone!

The sky was crying here this morning in the Big Apple today…LOL. How are things going on your side of the globe today? We are coming close to Memorial Day weekend here in the United States. It is considered the kick-off of summer. I think I may be hanging out with my kids on that holiday weekend. I always have a great time when I hang out with my tribe. Here’s another reminder for you that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. The same reminder goes for my first adult book entitled, “Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey To Become An Electrician”. I’m sharing with you another slice of some delicious Quora pie for your mind. This advice for today is regarding a question around the father of “Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs”, Abraham Maslow. I realized that I failed to provide an example and I can’t revise my response. Therefore, my example would be a person, her name is Marie, who has a fear of heights while learning how to climb 45-foot telephone poles with climbing gear for her job as a lineman. In order to pass the course and land that job, she needs to get past her fear and push through. It’s much safer to stay on the ground since losing your angle while distracted can mean falling quickly to the ground. However, passing that class would be considered as a great personal achievement and it will provide Marie’s family with a steady job with a great income to take care of her entire family as a widow. In addition to feeding her family, she will boost her self esteem and launch her towards a life where she can pay her bills with no problems. In this example, Marie gained way more on her life path by pushing past fear and experiencing growth. Since this post is towards the end of my day shift, I’m going to now go straight into my advice without further delay. What example comes to mind when you think about the infamous pyramid? Let me know your thoughts about this human behavior theory by dropping your comments in the comment section down below. Let’s get straight into it and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“Can you give an example of what Abraham Maslow meant when he said, “You will either step forward into growth, or you will step backward into safety”?”

By Andrew Parker

MY RESPONSE:

“Abraham Maslow was the psychologist who is the architect of “Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs”. This layered pyramid shares a person’s basic needs such as food, water, shelter as layer one. The next layer is safety and security. The third and fourth layers on top of the basic needs are the psychological needs such as self-esteem and the development of friends. The final top layer is the creation of one’s full potential via self fulfillment. Based upon my understanding on his theory on social behavior, I would think this phrase speaks upon either moving forward or falling back. There are two choices when you approach life. You either go full steam ahead and head towards learning lessons. Lessons lead to growth. If you step back and retreat in a known or safe environment, you may not learn the lesson that you are supposed to learn. It may feel safe that way and reasonable to do so. However, we are here on Earth to learn lessons. In reference to the Hierarchy of Needs, safety is the second layer of the pyramid. Meanwhile, the psychological growth that you will gain are the much higher levels on the pyramid. One may feel that safety is a high level to achieve. However, one has much more to climb. I wish you much luck on your life path and self discovery. #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls”

I appreciate you for not blasting right past this advice post today. What do you think about Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs? Do you subscribe to that man’s theory on human behavior? If so, do you care to expand even further on it? If you disagree with the theory and think it’s absolute trash, let me know as well?

Advice: What Is “Slap In The Face” Advice?

Photo Credit: The Dave Chappelle Show

*RE-POSTING FROM YESTERDAY (IT DISAPPEARED)*

Hello Everyone!

It is turning into a stormy day here in the Big Apple. It was humid earlier in the day and actually a decent day. I have officially stopped wearing my jacket to work. My goal is to no longer wear the jacket until October. How’s the day going for you on your side of the globe today? I’ve had another busy this week both at work and after work. I’m reminding you yet again that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. The same reminder goes for my first adult book entitled, “Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey To Become An Electrician”. I’m sharing with you another sliver of some Quora pie. This advice is about what is “slap in the face” advice? Since this is the end of my day shift, I’m going to go straight into my advice. I had a DOB inspector onsite who ate a big chunk of the day. What comes to mind when you think about this type of advice? Let me know your thoughts about this phrase by dropping you comments in the comment section down below. Let’s get straight into it and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“What is “slap in the face” advice?”

By Danny Margulies

MY RESPONSE:

“Oohhh!! I interpret “slap in the face” advice as a back handed compliment. It’s wild how advice can be a double edged sword that offers both advice and a stinging insult simultaneously. One example would be when a person offers unsolicited weight loss advice. Here is a classic example: “you’re face is beautiful” or “you would be even more stunning if you lost more weight”. On one hand, the person is offering a compliment. On the other hand, the person is also critical of the person’s body. The criticizing person is eluding that the person would look more beautiful if they put more effort in and lost some weight. For the person who has struggled with their weight for a lifetime for a variety of reasons, the last thing they want would be some slap in the face advice. The person offering the advice may very well think that they are doing a great thing. To some folks, informing a person of a deficiency is just merely sharing an observation. On the opposite end of the spectrum, this slice of advice is perceived as extremely cruel and highly unnecessary to offer. Prior to offering this type of advice, you must ask yourself as to exactly what is being accomplished? Is the goal to be informational? Will this unsolicited advice alter the course of a situation for the better? Will this advice prevent harm to another person or enrich a person’s life? One has to consider the goal before allowing that advice to pass your lips. We have to tread water lightly when offering advice. If you are offering some advice that is considered gossip or causes drama, you sure as hell better have a very clean house. You will look like a hypocrite if you are not practicing what you preach. Oftentimes, whatever credibility you had previously goes to zero because your words are not aligning with your actions. One must consider the possibility of self-sabotage after spilling the beans. Just know that when you freely offer unsolicited advice, just know that equally harsh face slapping advice can come your way. Just look for the value of the delivery before putting words out there that cannot be returned once spoken. I wish you much luck on your life path! #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous #NotAllGirlsPlayWtihDolls”

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.

Advice: Can You Hit The Broad Side Of A Barn With A Beach Ball?

Hello Everyone!

It is actually a decent Friday here in New York City. I’m happy for sweater to t-shirt weather. I have officially stopped wearing my jacket to work. My goal is to no longer wear the jacket until October. How’s the day going for you on your side of the globe today? I’ve had another busy this week both at work and after work. I’m reminding you yet again that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. The same reminder goes for my first adult book entitled, “Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey To Become An Electrician”. I’m sharing with you another slice of Quora advice. I’m honored to be giving you even more reading material while on the toilet. Your secret is safe with me and the other fellow readers. Let’s read this quick and go back to work. 😛 This Quora advice is on the phrase, “you couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with a beach ball”. I heard the phrase used by the elders as a kid growing up in Oregon. Out in Oregon, hunting is a major thing that the average person does. Many people do it for survival purposes. Growing up, I ate deer meat, fish, crab, salmon, and other things we caught in the wild. Therefore, being a good aim is vital for many families in order to survive in many parts of the world. Many people start their kids out with learning about firearms very young as well. I shot my first firearm at 7-years-old. I hunted my first deer by the time I was 12-years-old. As a New York City transplant now for many years, hunting is not something that I hear many folks do. I have ran into a few fellow construction workers who share their “tree stand” stories. My dad would never have allowed me to just sit in a tree and wait for the deer to show up. I had to draw them out, via doing sweeps up and down the side of the mountain. We would camp in the middle of nowhere and hunt for an entire week. I honestly don’t recall a fellow New Yorker ever saying that phrase to me. That doesn’t mean that people do not know the phrase here in New York. It’s quite possibly an old time saying that could be dying out. We have new vocabulary that takes over our society all of the time. Some of it can be thrown straight in the trash. My grandparents were kids during the Depression so they saw the world differently. My grandmother washed aluminum foil and plastic bags. My grandmother spoke about living in a barn or a cabin when she was a young woman in Michigan. I did have a great aunt who owned a dairy farm back in Oregon too. I cannot possibly remember all of there catch phrases. However, I do remember hearing the phrase “were you born in a barn?” when I left the door open as a kid. Are these phrases spoken in your part of the globe? Is it possible that there is another interpretation of the main phrase that is the chosen topic? Let me know your thoughts about this phrase by dropping you comments in the comment section down below. Without giving any more away, go ahead and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“What is the meaning of the saying, “you couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with a beach ball”?”

By Moohaumed Habib

MY RESPONSE:

“Haha!! I remember hearing that phrase from my grandma or my dad as a kid- minus the beach ball. The beach ball adds another humorous layer to the phrase. The phrase is used to describe a person with very poor aim. This could be with a fire arm or as simple as trying to throw a basketball or even pitch a baseball. The term is believed to have originated back in the mid-nineteenth century- within the military. It was often repeated in the early twentieth century, when it was applied to untalented baseball pitchers who could not throw the ball over the plate with any consistency. The “broad side” in this expression also suggests the old naval meaning of broadside, that is, a simultaneous discharge of all the guns on one side of a warship. Adding a beach ball to the mix makes it even harder since beach balls are light in nature. They are very hard to control when trying to aim at anything. We would be correct in assuming, depending on the distance, that being accurate with a beach ball is impossible. I sure wish you luck with trying! #ConstructionTales #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls #VerballyDisastrous”

Advice: Meaning Behind A Person With No Friends?

Hello Everyone!

It’s still a somewhat rainy Friday here in New York City. How’s the day going on your side of the globe today? I have been rather busy this week at work but I’m giving you not one but two blog posts today! I’m reminding you yet again that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. The same reminder goes for my first adult book entitled, “Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey To Become An Electrician”. I opted to share with you even more Quora advice. You are getting a double slice of advice today. I know you’re excited for more reading material. 😛 I’m honored to be sharing more reading material with you while on your break. This Quora advice is on the meaning of a person who has no friends. I’m an introvert by nature and absolutely love solitude. I also was that teenager that had one friend in middle school and one friend in high school. I moved away my senior year so flew solo my last year of high school. As an adult, my inner circle is super small. Even as a kid, I didn’t want to open up to people. I didn’t want them to know how poor or strict my household was that I grew up in. My dad didn’t believe that I needed friends since they could serve as a gateway for bad behavior. I wasn’t allowed to use the phone as a teenager either. These various childhood factors made me into a tough introvert. I used my school work as a distraction for how I perceived my home life in my teen years. I had to chop a cord of wood and had an intense cleaning schedule after school after I finished my homework. You know it’s not normal when you find a “break” by going to military boot camp. Because of my background, I find a person with no friends to be a rather guarded person. I certainly wouldn’t consider them to be a loser in life. I see friendship as requiring some level of vulnerability in order to develop that friendship. Over time, you bond over similar interests and have a low level of intimacy. The social skills required to connect with others can be challenging and not everyone possesses them. Our child years are where we develop these skills. If we don’t have great examples growing up, social skills don’t automatically translate into adulthood. You also have to have the mindset to endure the negative aspects of a large social circle. No matter how you present yourself, there will always be a person who is jealous and/or has an opinion on your life. You can successfully dodge that style of drama by limiting your social circle. I understand that, for the social butterfly, not having friends can impact a person’s life. I find it fascinating that a person’s social calendar can deeply impact their mental health. I never want to see anyone have poor mental health because of external factors. We are all guilty of this any time we allow a disagreement with a loved one to impact our day. Well, what is your interpretation of a person who doesn’t have any friends? Let me know your thoughts, whether it is either side of the coin, by dropping it down in the comment section down below. Without giving too much away, go ahead and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“What does it mean to others if someone doesn’t have any friends?”

By Rachel M

MY RESPONSE:

“I’m sure that answer lies if you are either an introvert or extrovert and how you see life through your lens. A social butterfly must have a social circle. Their mental health hinges on the status of their social calendar. I know the recent global pandemic deeply impacted the extroverts of society. Meanwhile, an introvert doesn’t mind the quiet time at all. As an introvert, you won’t have a tremendous amount of friends. That feature is not a comfortable thing for an introvert. You may not even want to be involved with a big group of people. Dealing with people is like nails on a chalkboard for an introvert. Being friends with people can bring on gossip, drama, unforeseen headaches, jealousy, trust issues, etc. I fall into the introvert category and have a very small social circle. I don’t see anything wrong with a person who doesn’t have a big social circle. However, it may be a red flag if the person has ZERO friends and writes angry manifestos on social media. Then again, everyone who shares their opinions publicly are not serial killers either. Proper social skills are not absorbed by all humans either. Some people are just socially awkward. Therefore, social gatherings are hard to endure. Just remember that not everyone thinks and/or acts just like you. I wish you luck and much success on your life path! #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls”

Advice: What Are The Cues That Show A Person Wanting To Move On?

Best 100 Career Minded And Working Women Podcasts

Hello Everyone!

I’m trying to stay dry on another rainy Friday here in New York City. I hope you are safe and well on this last day of the work week. Yesterday was a rather warm day that was highly appreciated. How is life on your side of the globe today? Here in the United States, we are observing Mother’s Day on Sunday. Do you also celebrate Mother’s Day on your side of the globe? I plan on getting my hair done and then go see a movie with my sons since it is raining. We originally were going to BBQ at a park since that is more fun than sitting in a restaurant. I have been very busy this week at work so my blog posts have been limited. I’m reminding you yet again that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. I opted to share with you some more Quora advice. You are getting another slice of advice to digest with me today. I’m giving you something to read while on your break. This advice is on the meaning behind this phrase “I understand if you want to move on”. Have you ever heard this phrase uttered before? I’ve heard samples of these indirect questions in the past. In my opinion, the person is asking the question by placing ownership of the disconnection on the other person. The person is suggesting that the other person wants to move on and offering to release them from the relationship. On the other hand, this person asking may have received enough social cues, over a period of time, through the person’s words and/or actions to form an opinion that they don’t want to stay in the relationship. Instead of remaining in a near dead relationship, it makes sense to clear the air and ask what’s on a person’s mind. What’s the worst thing that can happen? You ending up breaking off a relationship that was dying anyway. Time is short so we don’t have time to waste. I know that having that emotional connection is hard to cut. The fastest way to cut off the relationship is to remove the intimacy. In many relationships, the main soul tie is through sex. I believe that sex is an exchange of energy. That’s why, in my opinion, that you need to be careful with whom you have sex with since you don’t need to tap into bad energy. I’m aware that many couples remain in semi-dead relationships. They are afraid of opening the discussion into what each side wants. It is the fear of being alone. You have to be quite comfortable with your own skin and take care of yourself. I tend to cut ties with relationships that are more work and cause more pain than joy. I would describe each time where I end the relationship as a wrestling match where I’m in a head lock tapping out-LOL. It is very important to push the eject button when you see that you are doing all of the heavy lifting in the relationship and not being treated correctly. Any form of physical abuse should never be tolerated! God bless anyone who chooses to remain in a bad relationship that makes you cry, question your self worth, or consistently gives you emotional turmoil. Once you ask the question on the relationship, you will know one way or another. Just remember that being single means you answer to no one but yourself. There are many benefits to the single life and some cons. I totally understand people who are financially dependent on their significant other. I was really dependent on my spouse when he died. I felt better once I gained my independence that took time. Nowadays, I can’t imagine being forced to stay with someone due to financial reasons. Making your own money can be addicting. I’m not against a man choosing to make my life easier. However, I don’t feel comfortable with quitting my job and relying 100% on a man. I don’t give anyone who chooses that any grief either. I hope I didn’t ramble way off topic. 😛 Well, what is your interpretation of this phrase? If you have a totally different interpretation of this phrase, by all means, let me know in the comment section down below. Without giving too much away, go ahead and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“What does it mean if someone says “I understand if you want to move on”?”

By Joy Tabram

MY RESPONSE:

“You may have given social cues that you are no longer interested in a relationship and desire to move on. If you genuinely didn’t give hints that you want to move on, then this is a temperature gauge on our reaction to the comment. They may be observing your responses since you have left them in the dark previously about your intentions. It’s an indirect way to ask you about the status of your mindset. You need to do a quick self analysis as to how your words and/or actions have led to the other person not properly estimating your mindset. I wish you much luck and success with navigating through the perils of relationships. #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls”

Advice: Meaning Behind You’re Getting Too Old To “Cut The Mustard”?

Best 100 Career Minded And Working Women Podcasts

Hello Everyone!

Try to keep dry during this rainy Monday here in New York City. How is life on your side of the globe today? I hope you had a good weekend. I’m reminding you that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. I opted to share with you another piece of Quora advice. You are getting another slice of advice to chew on today. I said to myself, why not offer more reading material for your bathroom runs? You’re quite welcome my friend. This advice is on the meaning behind this phrase “you’re getting much too old “to cut the mustard””. How does a phrase like this impact you? Has anyone ever said it to you? I have heard the phrase used but I don’t recall anyone directing it my way. A person saying this to an elderly person is rather rude. I can’t think of a time where it would be appropriate. It is kind of a degrading thing to say no matter the reasoning. Perhaps a person who has a parent attempting to do a task that could cause them harm and require after care would merit using the phrase. Only the person knows exactly what they are capable of doing. Others can only perceive what another person is capable of doing or not doing. I don’t know the purpose of telling another person that they are too old to do stuff. If you have a totally different interpretation of this phrase, by all means, let me know in the comment section down below. Without giving away the entire store, go ahead and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“What is somebody telling you if they say, “you’re getting much too old “to cut the mustard”?”

By Rose Anne Campbell

MY RESPONSE:

“I think the phrase means that the person has reached an age to where you are able to complete a task. The phrase “cut the mustard” means to “come up to expectations; reach the required standard”. The word mustard itself goes back, via French, to the Latin mustum (English must), which was an altogether different substance. It was the juice squeezed from grapes before it was made into wine. Mustard is so named because the condiment was originally made by making mustards seeds into a paste with must. Cut the mustard appears to be an American original. Evidence for the phrase can be found in a Galveston, Texas newspaper in 1891–92. The author O. Henry—who spent many years in Texas, where he may have picked up the expression—used cut the mustard in his 1907 collection of short stories The Heart of the West. Therefore, the phrase means that a person interprets the other party of being too old to handle a task. The person may not be able to physically tackle a task due to physical limitations that can come from the aging process. The person calling it may be indeed accurate or just has this baseless perception. If it is a skewed perception, don’t allow it to stop ya. Go ahead and continue to cut the mustard for as long as you possibly can. Ideally, only you know what you can and cannot do with your body. I think it does sound like a rude yet honest phrase to say to someone. I wish you much luck and success on your journey. #ConstructionTales #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls #VerballyDisastrous”

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.

Advice: Meaning Of “I Had A Life Before You”?

Best 100 Career Minded And Working Women Podcasts

Hello Everyone!

Try to stay dry during this rainy Monday here in New York City. How is life on your side of the globe today? I hope you had a good weekend. I attended my son’s varsity football ring ceremony this weekend. Each of the kids got a personalized class ring that are large and heavy. The ring case has a light that turns on when you open the ring box. I’m happy for him that he got in on this moment with his team. He is now lifting weights in the gym during the week and getting ready for the next football season. They have a scrimmage coming up in May. He has football camp in June. As a senior, he will get more playing time so he has to put the work in to get ready. At the very least, he will get conditioned to be in great shape. I’m reminding you that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. I need to finish the audio version of the book. I opted to share with you another piece of Quora advice. This advice is on the meaning behind this phrase “I had a life before you”. I did try to think of different ways to decipher this phrase. The phrase was said during a passive disagreement. Therefore, we have two sides trying to dance around the actual subject matter. Some may think that this is a rude thing to say regardless of the context. Meanwhile, others may say that the person is just reminding the other person of those details. No matter the relationship, there is always one side that takes advantage of the other side. Over time, the person who does the majority of the heavy lifting will get tired of the power dynamics. Some people go for many years under an imbalance of conditions without changing circumstances. Others refuse to endure any situation that is unpleasant or causes that person to do all of the work. What side of the fence are you on this matter? If you have a totally different interpretation of this phrase, by all means, let me know in the comment section down below. Without giving away the entire store, go ahead and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“During a passive disagreement, what does he mean when he says “I had a life before you”?”

By Aries Journagin

MY RESPONSE:

“Well, I interpret a passive disagreement as when two parties are not finding a common ground yet are not being direct with their positions. I understand that the goal is to not hurt the feelings of either party. Therefore, being passive is a tactic in order to remove the sting and dance around the subject matter delicately. I find the choice of not directly tackling the issue(s) to be annoying. In an ideal world, people should just say how they feel without going up to a super savage level. I do understand that words cut and cannot be removed once it is placed in the center of a conversation. To sprinkle on top of everything, people are becoming more and more sensitive nowadays. Therefore, I have a general understanding about the desire to tip-toe around an issue. However, tip toeing around an issue tends to lead down a spiraling road of frustrations until there is either an explosive argument or a meeting of the minds. Remember that people are often not very good at taking passive hints. Indirect communication can instead lead to misunderstandings in either the long or short term. In lieu of direct communication, parties are compelled to beat around the bush that is the root issue with indirect thoughts. The choice to use these forms of communication methods can either be one or both parties. Passive tactics involve: sulking behavior, issuing backhanded compliments or sarcasm, total communication withdrawal, and/or indirectly making negative comments on the issue. Perhaps the person is hoping that you will get the hint of what they are trying to say? Does it really make you the “bad guy” if you go ahead and say what is exactly on your mind? Perhaps the person knows that they are potentially one sentence away from going absolutely savage on the other party if they drop their guard for even a moment. It would make sense to be cautious in that instance if keeping yourself from achieving some sort of a “Viking status” is not a strength of yours. Consider that this could be their way of demonstrating tact considering what they want to say is far more hurtful. Saying “I had a life before you” is a prime example of an indirect/nice way of letting the other party know that they shouldn’t lean so heavily on them. The person may want acknowledgement for their efforts. The person could feel like they are now “whipped” and no longer have an independent life since they are now dedicated to your needs and wants and not so much their own. They used to have a life prior to you making so many demands on them nowadays. It could be an indirect way of expressing displeasure over the other party’s smothering nature and they’re hoping that you take the hint. They may even wonder how you managed to conduct yourself prior to crossing paths with them? The person may miss or want some degree of independence back. While being a parental capacity, this phrase could be said to either a young child (which is just nasty & cruel) or an adult child who still chooses to still depend on the parent as opposed to creating their own way. I would find it humorous if a parent said that to a +30-year-old “child” since it would be totally laced with equal parts frustration and sarcasm. Another way to consider the phrase is in the vein of an intimate relationship. Prior to linking up romantically, they each had a sexual history prior to meeting the current person. If said to mean in that manner, it’s the cue to back off of them (yes, I’m missing context) and loosen up the reins of jealousy. The reins you are using to hold the person are the very same ones that will suffocate them in the short or long term. Oftentimes, the phrase is said either out of sheer frustration or simple arrogance if there is no build up to the phrase being uttered. It’s a phrase that could be said in an effort to let their partner know indirectly that life was simpler prior to meeting them. They could be weighing the pros vs cons of going back to life before knowing the other party. If your partner feels an imbalance in efforts, then you need to figure out how to lighten their load in other arenas. If you don’t make the change, they may drop their efforts and back out of the situation if there is no balance in the relationship. Another way to view this phrase could be in reference to work. The person saying the phrase may feel like their co-workers rely on them way too much. Their life was much easier prior to accepting that job. Only the person saying the phrase knows where they are mentally with the job and the work load. On the other hand, some people are not even overworked at all. They may just have the personality where they have to moan and complain about everything. No matter the capacity of the relationship where this phrase is expressed, may you find balance and harmony that causes the relationship to last as long as possible. Much luck and success!! #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous”

Advice: What Is “Slap In The Face” Advice?

Photo Credit: The Dave Chappelle Show

Hello Everyone!

It is turning into a stormy day here in the Big Apple. It was humid earlier in the day and actually a decent day. I have officially stopped wearing my jacket to work. My goal is to no longer wear the jacket until October. How’s the day going for you on your side of the globe today? I’ve had another busy this week both at work and after work. I’m reminding you yet again that my first children’s book “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. The same reminder goes for my first adult book entitled, “Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey To Become An Electrician”. I’m sharing with you another sliver of some Quora pie. This advice is about what is “slap in the face” advice? Since this is the end of my day shift, I’m going to go straight into my advice. I had a DOB inspector onsite who ate a big chunk of the day. What comes to mind when you think about this type of advice? Let me know your thoughts about this phrase by dropping you comments in the comment section down below. Let’s get straight into it and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“What is “slap in the face” advice?”

By Danny Margulies

MY RESPONSE:

“Oohhh!! I interpret “slap in the face” advice as a back handed compliment. It’s wild how advice can be a double edged sword that offers both advice and a stinging insult simultaneously. One example would be when a person offers unsolicited weight loss advice. Here is a classic example: “you’re face is beautiful” or “you would be even more stunning if you lost more weight”. On one hand, the person is offering a compliment. On the other hand, the person is also critical of the person’s body. The criticizing person is eluding that the person would look more beautiful if they put more effort in and lost some weight. For the person who has struggled with their weight for a lifetime for a variety of reasons, the last thing they want would be some slap in the face advice. The person offering the advice may very well think that they are doing a great thing. To some folks, informing a person of a deficiency is just merely sharing an observation. On the opposite end of the spectrum, this slice of advice is perceived as extremely cruel and highly unnecessary to offer. Prior to offering this type of advice, you must ask yourself as to exactly what is being accomplished? Is the goal to be informational? Will this unsolicited advice alter the course of a situation for the better? Will this advice prevent harm to another person or enrich a person’s life? One has to consider the goal before allowing that advice to pass your lips. We have to tread water lightly when offering advice. If you are offering some advice that is considered gossip or causes drama, you sure as hell better have a very clean house. You will look like a hypocrite if you are not practicing what you preach. Oftentimes, whatever credibility you had previously goes to zero because your words are not aligning with your actions. One must consider the possibility of self-sabotage after spilling the beans. Just know that when you freely offer unsolicited advice, just know that equally harsh face slapping advice can come your way. Just look for the value of the delivery before putting words out there that cannot be returned once spoken. I wish you much luck on your life path! #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous #NotAllGirlsPlayWtihDolls”

Advice: Why Are People Triggered By Hearing “No Offense”?

Best 100 Career Minded And Working Women Podcasts

Hello Everyone!

May this windy a$$ Thursday be the only distraction to an otherwise smooth, problem-free day today. How is your schedule going for you on your side of the globe today? Your favorite New York construction worker chick has brewed up another Quora question and response for your reading pleasure today. For this blog post, I’m sharing this Quora question about why people get triggered by hearing the phrase “no offense” after receiving a dose of harsh truth. I found this to be a rather interesting question so I responded and opted to share with you. Over the years, I’ve learned that sharing some unsolicited harsh truth can be such a tight rope to walk. If you read my posts, you have figured out by now that I love people who don’t beat around the bush and just say what is on their minds. Of course I’d like to see them exercise tact with their delivery. There is a time and a place for everything and that needs to be analyzed beforehand. I’m aware that there is a fine line of revealing the truth while not looking like a bully for sharing such harsh details. As a young woman, I did believe that the only thing that was acceptable was the truth. How dare people walk through life living a lie or subjecting others to a pile of lies!??! As a kid, it was always pushed that it is super important to always tell nothing but the truth. However, when you get older, all of a sudden you can be considered a “monster” or a “bully” for casting light on a harsh truth that was previously hidden in the dark. Who the hell are you to shatter a person’s fake reality?? As an older woman, I’ve learned that not all truths need to be revealed or delivered. What’s the point!??! You have to ask yourself as to why is the truth being withheld or hidden to begin with? What good actually comes from delivering the harsh truth?? Will this delivery prompt any form of change? Will it save a life!? Will the harsh truth prevent a person from making a critical choice with limited data that was previously hidden? Is the harsh truth messenger concerned about the other party not being aware of their own character flaws? Will the truth set them free?? Is the messenger hoping to wake up the person with the harsh truth? Even the most dense people who walk the Earth are aware of their flaws and weaknesses deep down. Sometimes the truth is really hard to swallow and very embarrassing if they’re revealed. Some people feel very bad about themselves when the truth is exposed. When the messenger adds “no offense” after the fact, it is interpreted as an extra slap to the face. I totally understand why a person gets triggered by the phrase. Why does the term “no offense” even need to be said after the harsh truth reveal anyway? Is the messenger hoping to soften the blow or insulate themselves with that phrase? How is it even possible to think that you are delivering some harsh truth and the person receiving won’t take it personal? You are trying to open the lid on some of the most ugly and unflattering character defects on that person. If you can’t handle the smoke, as the messenger, that comes as the aftermath after a truth blast, then perhaps you should fall back from giving people a dose of the truth. If blasting a person with a truth bomb makes YOU uncomfortable, then you need to fall back on your delivery. Let’s go rattle a person’s cage with some ugly truth and hope they don’t take it personal. Now that’s some foolery and you know it!! If you can’t handle the heat, stay out of the damn kitchen. It takes tremendous courage and mental strength to go on a truth crusade on your white horse and manage the emotional aftermath. A person sounds super soft to me when they add “no offense” after delivering that truth blow. You really need to fully think out the entire process to see if it is even worth getting involved in something that has zero impact on your own life. I realize people are bored with life and need some extra drama to spice up their otherwise boring work week. Many people are very nosey with matters that do not impact them whatsoever (yup, myself included)! However, unless the harsh truth impacts my life, I now choose to avoid carrying that truth torch these days. If it is absolutely pointless to step up and deliver that dose of reality, I will choose to push the “mind my business” button these days. I don’t feel like getting into a fist fight when the person takes the revelation all of the way serious and angrily gets in their feelings. When I was younger, I had a ton of energy and was totally championing to always do the right thing. Nowadays, I think about the extra mental head space that this situation could require. If it is going to exhaust me or take money out of my pocket for some damn reason, I will leave the savages on their own to hash that out. I just know full well to dodge this moron to the best of my ability. How do you handle situations where it appears that a harsh truth needs to be revealed? If applicable, I’d love to hear your unique approach to handling being triggered by hearing the phrase “no offense”. Are you a harsh truth crusader? If it doesn’t bother you at all, also let me know in the comment section down below. If you have a totally different interpretation of people being triggered by that phrase, by all means, let me know your personal theory on being triggered as well. Now, without further delay, go ahead and check out the question and my response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“Why do people get so triggered by “No Offense”? Whenever I say it, I always intend to point out a harsh truth but don’t have a kinder way of saying it.”

MY RESPONSE:

“I believe that the “No Offense” cherry on top of a truth pie is triggering since it can be considered as an extra silent dig to the person receiving the harsh truth. It’s a way for you to totally acknowledge that your feedback just stung like a bee. Your style of delivering the harsh truth can make all the difference as well. If the truth is said in jest, it can sometimes soften the blow or anger the receiver. There is always a kinder way to deliver a harsh truth. It requires some consideration but it can be crafted to soften the impact. You should always make an effort to lead the chat in a positive way by throwing in some good feedback beforehand. If you deliver the truth in front of an audience, then it is no longer the truth. It is just you being a bully while trying to get a laugh at the other person’s expense. Be cautious as to how, where, and when you deliver your feedback since that does matter. No matter who the person is or what they have done, you can always find some good talking points. I’m a huge fan of direct people. I’m not fond of indirect, passive people since I don’t want to guess as to what the hell you want. Additionally, they can come across as being weak asf. There needs to be some balance with issuing your input. I chuckled quite heartily at the other commenters who are telling you to mind your business. Technically, they are doing the exact same thing that you are doing. One thing to consider, prior to offering the advice, is the actual objective of the advice? Will offering the truth change how the move going forward? Is it saving a person’s life? Does it shed light of someone attempting to lie and cheat? Where does it lie on your moral compass? Do you believe that you are doing good by revealing the truth? As a young woman, I used to feel compelled to ensure that the truth was heard and revealed. The older I get, I analyze as to what good comes from the truth? If absolutely nothing changes as a result, I have withheld my observations. I’ve also learned that the truth can vary according to the life lens that views it. The wild thing is that revealing a truth can make the messenger look like a bully/jerk if the delivery is not on point. Meanwhile, the messenger just feels like they are merely exposing the hidden truth. I wish you much luck on crafting you delivery of the truth so the message is not lost due to your shoddy approach. #ConstructionTales #VerballyDisastrous”

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.
