Today, I had to give a speech as part of my campaign for school captain. I was rather happy with it and so I told another candidate my speech. Apparently it was a good idea as minutes later that same candidate stole my entire speech, leaving me looking like a complete idiot. FML

Ahh politics. You should never give your stuff away. It should be secret until given so that that won't happen. You should work him stealing your speech into your speech.

#7: It's easy to memorize a speech; I've done it before. I was coached on a speech once and I basically regurgitated it back out. Just pay attention to the main points and you can BS your way through the rest. :)


My thoughts exactly. Who tells another candidate the ENITRE speech before the actual speech in the first place? And who on earth can remember that speech word for word after only hearing it once?

Doc - that, or the speech was actually really simple, and not something to be all that proud of.

Welshite - Being coached on a speech is different from being read a speech. You knew you were going to have to remember and recite that speech, and probably did it right away. OP's competitor didn't know beforehand that the speech would be worth remembering and stealing, and had to wait a few minutes, while hearing other speeches.

Why would you do that??? Common sense should have said to keep your speech to yourself and not brag about it, especially to someone running against you... Idiot.
