[CARTOON] We need to talk
Alternatives to the over-used phrase “we need to talk”:
1) Just say what you really want to say, just spit it out. There’s no need for an introductory sentence. Just be straight and to the point. Some people prefer abrasive honesty to sugar-coated words. If you’re direct and straightforward, it leaves little room for misunderstanding.
2) "Listen, you [insert favorite explicit word here]." This works especially well if the person you are trying to talk to won’t listen, is oblivious, or is running around the room with their hands on the ears saying "Blah Blah Blah".
