The world would be a better place if we all remembered to say these phrases more often.

20 things we should say more often...

Number 20: Thank you. And not just on Thanksgiving, everyday!

Number 19: Excuse me.

Number 18: Here’s a surprise corn dog I bought you because you’re my friend. There’ll be more corn dogs and more happy people. This is a good idea! Corn dog for you, corn dog for you, corn dog for you!

Number 17: I’m sorry.

Number 16: I forgive you.

Number 15: You can do it! But don’t say it if it’s something they can’t do.

Number 14: Another thing that we should say more often, I have barbecue sauce on my shirt too. Before you say something about the barbecue sauce on somebody else’s shirt, take a look at the barbecue sauce on your own shirt.

Number 13: Please.

Number 12: Everything is going to be okay.

Number 11: Aw! You got me a corn dog too? You shouldn’t have buddy!

Number 10: I don’t know. I know a lot of people who need to say that. My sister!

Number 9: You’re so awesome I named my dog after you. Wait, wait, wait that could hurt somebody’s feelings. I mean boat! I named my boat after you. Wait who even has a boat. You’re so awesome I legally changed my name to yours. Wait that’s super creepy. Just tell people they’re awesome and mean it!

Number 8: Hello person I’ve never met before, here’s a high-five!

Number 7: My sports team is not always the best sports team. It takes a big man to say that.

Number 6: Nothing. Sometimes that’s the best thing you could say.

Number 5: [raspberry sound] ha ha ha. That doesn’t mean anything but it’s just really funny!

Number 4: I disagree with you, but I still like you as a person who is a human being and I will treat you like that because if I didn’t, it would make everything bad and that’s what lots of people do and it’s lame. I need a water break y’all It’s okay to disagree but it’s not okay to be mean.

Number 3: Sometimes you just gotta scream! AAAAAH!!

Number 2: Life is tough, but so are you. Sometimes we all need to be reminded to keep going!

Number 1: Something nice! Anything.

If you can’t think of anything nice to say, you’re not thinking hard enough.

So what about you? What do you think people should say more often?
