Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!
This is funny in some situations, like this one...
But in all seriousness, saying "I don't have time for that!" can be a rude thing to say to someone.
In the book Teach Like A Pirate, Dave Burgess talks about the phrase "You are lucky, you are creative!" He goes on to explain why that makes me so angry. It's actually a very funny part of the book, because I can totally relate!
🇮 🇩🇴🇳'🇹 🇭🇦🇻🇪 🇹🇮🇲🇪 🇫🇴🇷 🇹🇭🇦🇹! is the phrase that sets me off! The other day I was super excited about an idea I found on Twitter and couldn't wait to share with another educator (less "connected" than I am). I thought the response would be, "That's awesome!" or "Thanks for sharing!" or even, "I might need to try that." Something besides, "I don't have time for Twitter!"
It crushes me, makes me mad, and makes me sad all at the same time.
All I could think of is... 🇮 🇲🇦🇰🇪 🇹🇮🇲🇪 🇫🇴🇷 🇮🇹!
