Finally, let’s look at the last Day 33 topic of 99 Days of Freedom: Who Goes Back Early? Nothing happened: nothing, thing, happened, bad, really.
The topic often occurred in response to questions about the worst thing that happened to the respondent. However, there were also some responses to the question about the best thing that happened wherein the respondent stated that s/he could not think of anything:
“Nothing actually, I can’t think of anything bad worth mentioning.”
“I can’t say there has been anything terrible happen.”
“not a damn thing. there was nothing on there that enriched my life. only the opposite.”
Many respondents specifically say that they cannot think of anything bad that happened. Such statements do not rule out the possibility of negative repercussions having occurred, but if they are not forefront in the respondent’s mind, then the likelihood of reversion decreases slightly.
|If nothing bad would happen, would you make up your mind to deactivate your Facebook account? Feel free to leave us a comment.|
