Don’t skimp

Posted on: July 21, 2019

I return to the adage say what you mean and mean what you say. Case in point:

If we give the benefit of the doubt, we know what the message means: The group wants to do good by reducing homeless problem.

But to do that, they group should have first said what they meant. They could have not skimped on the words “the number of”. The message could have read: We plan to cut the number of all homeless people in half by 2015.

Before we mean what we say, we need to first say what we mean.
