Scott Faber, the founder of Ingenio, likes to say that the worst phrase in the English language is “TMI” (Too Much Information).
often someone is telling a story to a group and one of the group members blurts out “TMI” right when the story is getting good. And, of course, the “TMI” stops the story dead in its tracks … and that is usually the point where everyone is really interested.
The best stories are often ones that are a little over-the-top. So eliminate “TMI” from your vocabulary.
