"Let Me Be Clear", You KNOW they Won't Be Clear If You Hear This First

This has to be one of the MOST OVERUSED Phrases in the 21st Century! The meaning is SO DISTORTED because if someone says "LET ME BE CLEAR" you KNOW that what follows will certainly be not clear, opinionated, half true and/or misleading. I don't remember when I was young people having the personal need to start talking with the preface "LET ME BE CLEAR!" Why? Does it mean they fib so much that they have to make the listener feel, "Well maybe they are telling the truth this time"? (Photo: Let me be clear by Tumisu, Pixabay)

Hello Jeff - let's be clear, there are quite a few introductions that can lead to suspicion.  When "honesty" is mentioned, I  tend to "wonder" - what was coming from your mouth moments before.

Exactly as I feel Michael Jacobs we are on the "same page". Let your yes be yes and your no be no. Let me be clear as a statement does make one believer the speaker is so shady in previous statements that the statement that follows must be prefaced. Jeff

Hi Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI 

"Let Me Be Clear" is usually used as an imperative, an authoritative statement. So, they are either acting in authority over you or the situation. (Hope that's tight as it's about the only thing I remember from English class...lol)

Hey Doug Dawes that is helpful and certainly more than I remember in the imperative statement form English class. Let Me Be Clear is a cloudy statement though. Jeff 😀

Hi Kathy Streib You are correct. "Let me be HONEST with you" is worse than "Let me be CLEAR". Either way what follows is likely to be questionable. Jeff
