What is a Palzewism?
Several years ago, a college friend coined the word Palzewism. A Palzewism is a funny one liner utter from me, Ken Palzewicz, in order to defuse a tense situation.
There was an older lady in front of me in the checkout line at Pick N Save. She was getting quite vocal and profane with the cashier. Upon further listening, I began to understand the problem. There was an in store coupon for $2 off some item if you bought 10 of them. She was upset that instead of getting $2 off, she received 20 cents off each item. That’s when I found myself saying out loud:
“I’m a special ed teacher, maybe I can help?”
See. One line diffused the situation and allowed all parties to step back and rethink!
