FYI, Too, Too Much Information By Yvonne
Too much information can be gross. I'm thinking of an acquaintance who was so disgusted with a hotel bathroom she decided to pee in the tub. She actually shared this information as if it were a tip to remember. I was dying to ask if she relieved herself before or after showering and if she cleaned the tub or at least gave it a good rinse. That would have only led to more too much information.
Too much information can be a turnoff. Telling a potential love interest that you feel too bloated to go out isn't a great beginning. Who wants to imagine you bloated?
We're all guilty of sharing too much, don't despair. TMI isn't as bad as a gaffe. Depending on the company you're in, you can say, "Excuse me, I didn't mean to be so gross." If you were trying to close a deal, say nothing and pray. And also pray that you're not in the company of a blogger.
