All Day and All of the Night

I'm currently entering reviewer comments into a training module. This particular reviewer keeps rewriting things to include the phase "at the end of the day:"

"At the end of the day we have to sell solutions that . . ."
"At the end of the day we have to accurately identify . . ."
"At the end of the day we have to guarantee that . . ."

Why can't we do these things in the morning? Or all day long? In fact, aren't these the most important points? Do you really think I can say "at the end of the day" in the training?

YES! You MUST use the phrase "at the end of the day" as often as humanly possible throughout the training. That way, the next time this reviewer reviews the training, he'll learn just how ridiculous the phrase sounds. You need to use it as many times as he used it multiplied by the number of pages in the training. DO IT!

Unless it's Rena. In which case, you're damned no matter what you do.

and you must use acronyms in as many places as possible. preferably without defining them anywhere. make some up. like ATEOTD instead of "at the end of the day."

don't people hear how much they say certain phrases? to the point that all original meaning is gone?

You are not kankuchoing enough. And I am sad.
