Spoken English Course Day 26

Topic: Speaking

Hi guys,

How's it going today?

I'm going to make this a bit of a short and hopefully sweet one.  I'm a bit sick today with a cold so I want to get to bed soon.

Anyway, I wanted to teach a phrase I just read on MSN from my friend.  He was joking when he said it, but it's a good phrase anyway in real life.

It's, "You shouldn't point fingers

It means that you shouldn't "blame" other people.  In our culture, and probably many others, it is rude to point at someone.  It means you blame them and think something is their fault.

So an example is: "You shouldn't point fingers at anyone else, this whole thing is your own fault".

Please check out my free PDF spoken English online course

I'll be back with a longer lesson tomorrow.  Thanks everyone!

When a guy points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself LOL

So don't point our fingers at anyone else, after all you also acted a role in the game!
