Chef Laura: Down with upspeak!

If women want to be be taken seriously, they should also maintain eye contact during a conversation. Never lose the staring war. By another take on 2014 04 24

Chef Laura: Down with upspeak!

Yo, L. good words... However, I think I need to interject a possible disagreement (just a little) about your men from mars portion of the article, well just because I think you might be a little off mark (but that's OK, you do a great job). Men don't want to conquer, just to have people obey them. By mmmm.... on 2014 04 24

Chef Laura: Down with upspeak!

PF chose my favorite line too! Great article that touches on a subtle impact in the workplace. I always keep in mind an old radio commercial for a vocabulary program that said, "people judge you by the words you use." As your article says, HOW you speak also will determine your status. Admittedly, I probably use "dude" too much, but I try to keep that out of the office. By Ted on 2014 04 24

Chef Laura: Down with upspeak!

Oh, well, Peter Piper picked a pepper, I guess I did! (Thanks for the memories and the insight.) By Randy on 2014 04 24

Chef Laura: Down with upspeak!

Great article. One of your best. I particularly "like:" "In professional kitchens, if someone was fluent in upspeak, they would also be well-versed in unemployment." "You know" is another unnecessary popular verbal tic - also seeking affirmation, I presume. By PF on 2014 04 24
