Stories not to tell

In Storyworthy Matthew Dicks says, and you have to agree, that no-one cares:

  1. How nice your holiday was.
  2. What you did when you were smashed.

When someone politely asks about your holiday, tell them about a story worthy 5 second moment.

For example, I took the kids to New York and it was great. We did all the cool stuff tourists do. But also, I got us detained. Think height chart photos, fingerprints taken. That is the interesting story.
