Hello, ladies and gentleman, and welcome to another episode of RealLIfe TV.
Today I'm going to teach you all how to use the expressions just saying and it's all good.
Is this RealLife?
The phrase "just saying" is often used when we want to give someone some feedback, maybe
some consrtuctive criticism, and also maybe when we say something without thinking too
much, and it could come across as offensive.
So, when I finish my phrase, I would often add "just saying" to the end, so that person
doesn't take it too seriously, or doesn't get offended by what you've just said.
For example, if I was to say "mhmm... looks like you've put on a little bit of weight,
So, when I say "just saying" at the end, it means that I'm not trying to criticize the
person, they should not be offended, I'm just telling them the truth from my perspective.
Another example: If a colleague of yours at work happens to arrive late consecutively,
you might want to give them some advice, by saying "Hey, buddy, you might want to try
to get to work on time, or the boss could fire you. Just saying..."
So, in that case, you don't want your friend to think that you're being bossy, or telling
him what to do, you're just giving him some friendly advice.
So, that's how we use just saying.
Just so you guys know, some people often use this in a sarcastic way, or sometimes they
are being offensive intentionally, and then using this phrase "just saying" just so the
person thinks they're joking around.
And the next expression: it's all good.
The expression all good is used often to say no problems, no worries. If someone apologizes
to you, you might say "oh, it's all good," just to show that person that you are not
offended by what he or she did to you, and that everything is ok.
