Just say “NO!” to committment

“Committed.” It’s the ultimate weasel word. Are you doing something or not…? If you’re committed, you don’t have to take a stand one way or another. “Committed to” is the limbo in between where you don’t have to actually… well, commit; just think happy thoughts about something or other.

In the case of this particular elevator, it’s either getting things going in the right direction or it’s not. I think it IS an improvement. I think the subway platform will definitely be more accessible with an elevator.

I wish I’d had a spray can with me, but – chicken that I am – I must content myself with digitally vandalizing the poster once I got home.

(yes, here in Canada, “committment” IS the proper spelling… despite my spell-checker helpfully underlining the word)

Oops – apparently, I have already ranted here about the word committment, in the context, kind of, of Ikea furniture. Feel free to read that post, too!

  1. LOL at you having to vandalize the sign once you got home. I've done that too just to get it out of my system. But it was with graffiti at the bus stop once.
