Georgia Mud Fudged Information

Updated: Apr 17, 2021

Your credibility is critically important to yourself and to others. You should try to make sure that if you are making a statement that you are claiming as "truth", please do your homework first...otherwise, either say it's your opinion, or say hold on while I get "the truth".


This weekend my wife Pandora and I went to Dairy Queen. It's close to the house, so it's the one we typically go to when I can no longer fight my temptation. I ordered my usual (most recent addiction), the Georgia Mud Fudge Blizzard™ at the drive-through speaker and the young lady said, "I'm sorry, we don't have that here". I responded carefully because I don't like arguing with people providing my food. I said, "Are you sure? If so I can order a different flavor, but I get Georgia Mud Fudge from here every time". She replied, "um, ya, we don't have that. We have it in a Sunday but not in a Blizzard".

Now I'm looking at Pandora even more crazy, like, "did she just say that?"


I replied back, "so, you have this flavor as a sunday but not as a blizzard?" and she says, "hold on one minute, I'll be right back".


Typically, when somebody is giving me information that sounds false, or like they don't know what they're talking about, I"ll repeat it back to them...just to make sure I'm picking it up correctly, and also so they can take complete responsibility for what they're saying after hearing it back.


Back to DQ. She came back and said, "ok, and what else would you like?" Of course I'm still wondering if I'm going to get my hands on a Georgia Mud Fudge Blizzard, so I had to bring her back, "did you find out if you have the Georgia Mud Fudge?". She replies, "um, no we don't have that, well, let me go ask, hold on". Guess who I'm looking at with my head to the side and my eyes wide opened...yep...Pandora. The young lady comes back and no joke, she says, "ok and what else?". I said, "so do you have it?" and she says "yes, we do. What else would you like?", and the rest is history.


I was scared, especially when my receipt had a different flavor on it and she explained that's just what they use for the receipt, but it tasted like what I asked for and the day was lovely afterwards.

My point is, try not to take a guess at something when the moment calls for facts. Your opinions matter, but when you're trying to get to the truth about things (going beyond my story now), make yourself toss out opinions, emotions, bias, and ask yourself, is this a FACT before I say it, and before I believe it? As you clarify your life, your options, dreams, goals, and you look at where you are right now, deal with FACTS...positive or not, and start working it out from there ;)
