SARAH Vine has said Boris Johnson was working ’24 hours a day, seven days a week’, which is impossible or he’d be dead. Here are more bullshit claims people make.
Giving 150 per cent
Anyone with half a brain knows that giving anything over 100 per cent is impossible, but that hasn’t stopped this phrase being a firm favourite of try-hard idiots whose ambition in life is to be a tit everyone laughs and sneers at on The Apprentice.
Nothing worth having comes easy
From ordering a pizza on Deliveroo to becoming PM because you’re rich and went to Eton, many examples prove this quote is bollocks. Usually said by the kind of twat who thinks there’s something impressive about working incredibly long hours with no reward except a heart attack at 41.
Do or do not. There is no try
It’s spiritual because Yoda said it, right? No. He’s not a religious leader akin to the Dalai Lama, he’s a puppet from a kids’ film. Also, ‘try’ clearly does exist, because people have genuinely tried to do worthwhile things without succeeding. Although ‘trying’ to lose weight while snacking between meals 17 times a day does not count.
If you really worked 24 hours a day, seven days a week, you would quickly go insane and die through lack of sleep. It doesn’t impress anyone, it’s nonsensical, and you would also be extremely boring.
I’ll sleep when I’m dead
No, you won’t. You’ll be dead when you’re dead. And all of these arse-licking attempts to suck up to your boss will be dead too. So maybe sleep while you’re alive and stop being a f**king liar.
