    Have you ever used this saying? If so do you really think you are and why? If you just use it as a saying knowing youre not, why?
    For those that havent used it for fairly obvious logical reasons what do you think of it?
    In conclusion to those that use it, yes, yes you are the only one thats ever thought of what youre stating. Bravo thinker!

  3. May as well drop everyone and always from your vocabulary while you're at it. TS , as they are almost never accurate in a literal sense either .....Or you could acknowledge that it's a figure of speech, a colloquiallism of sorts and get on with your life.

    What gets me is when people start a sentence with "obviously." And I do it too. But if something is obvious, it should go without saying.

    Sometimes you really are the only one who thinks a certain way.

    Example, in another culture about certain situations like driving. You think you're gonna be able to change lanes without a struggle in China? Think again.

    Obviously, using the word is a microaggression, and I won't accept that from your cis-whatever-something, I don't know what the fuck people complain about.

    It's a saying that is the passive aggressive equivalent to saying "I'm going to point out the Elephant in the room."

    It means, "Why is everyone pretending this isn't happening?"

    Like if your in an elevator with all your colleagues and one of them is clearly farting the whole way up and everyone is politely ignoring it.

    When I get relieved from my shift late.
    "Am I the only one who fucking comes to work on time or is everybody getting screwed like this?

    My boss told me I sound poor, and that my Sherbros are laughing at me.
    Truth?

    Lol if I'm on an elevator and somebody is farting all the way up, I would love to loudly say "WHY THE FUCK is everyone pretending this isn't happening?!"
