A Quick Thought

How come things that are “needless to say” never seem to go unsaid?

  1. I think “needless to say” is often a code for “don’t question whether what I’m saying is true.” It a good way to force a point that may seem true on the surface, but can’t bear scrutiny.

  2. You know, I just thought it was a funny little thought but you’re right. By saying “needless to say,” a person is suggesting that if you didn’t already think that you’re dumb. It implies that the statement is obviously true when perhaps that is not the case.
