100 Things No Man Over 40 Should Ever Say

Best Life Logo By Bob Larkin of Best Life | Slide 1 of 101: There comes a point in every man’s life when he has to give up certain things. Like borrowing his dad’s car as his main mode of transportation. Or thinking of shorts as “business casual.” Or trying adventurous haircuts. Above all, there are certain words and phrases that you just shouldn’t be using any more. Under any circumstances.Yes, yes, we know, we’re not the boss of you. Nobody can tell you what to do. But there’s a big difference between having a unique and colorful personality in your 40s and saying things that shouldn’t be coming out of the word-hole of an emotionally mature adult male. We wouldn’t dream of telling you what political beliefs you should have, or the only appropriate religious convictions, or even what kind of music you should listen to. We just think that a man who’s been on the planet for at least four decades shouldn’t be saying things like, “That is so sus.” (If you had to Google what “sus” means, then you’ve just proved our point.)To create the definitive list of words and phrases that a man in his 40s should exorcise from his vocabulary with extreme prejudice, we enlisted the help of Barbara Pachter, a business etiquette coach from New Jersey, and Richie Frieman, a manners expert and author of REPLY ALL…and Other Ways to Tank Your Career. And for more on language you may not want to say, check out the 100 Slang Terms from the 20th Century No One Uses Anymore.
