……..what I am doing is not taking responsibility for what ever it is that I am saying.
– I’ll be there at 10ish
– It will be warmish
– It’s kinda close-ish
If you live in southern California, you can sometimes blame the traffic to you get you there in time-ish. A friend pointed out that I had said it a few times in a post and it made me think about why I say it. I came to the conclusion that It’s a way to approximate, but then also relieve yourself of your word.
It’s definitely a personality thing – I don’t want any pilot or engineer to be okay with close enough-ish. They need to be precise.
I will watch how I use the word ish. Do you use the word-ish?
