You should only utter the phrase one time—when forces out of your control have resulted in tragedy: i.e. the passing of a relative, being hit by a drunk driver, etc.
NEVER utter this phrase under the following circumstances:
- You’ve been impregnated for the third time by an El Salvadorian gang member
- You’ve received a fourth DUI in the last five months
- Your 20-year addiction to cocaine has caused another suitor to flee
- Your adult children feel that you’re a worthless piece of shit.
The first scenario is out of your control…in the hands of God.
