“I don’t have time to…”

Everyone loves to make up excuses whether they are legitimate or not. The best way you know that someone is making an excuse that has no merit is when they begin their argument with, “I don’t have time to…” When people meet me, one of their first things that they learn is that I love to cook. The usual response (especially in New York) is, “I’d love to cook, but I don’t have time to.” Granted, this is usually something Millennials say to me. You guys think you don’t have any time with your full time jobs and social life? Well, your parents had time to cook a homemade meal for you most nights with their full time jobs, your siblings, and other responsibilities, so I’m pretty sure what you should be saying is that you prefer to do other things with your time. We all have time; how we choose to spend it is a completely different issue.
