My guess is that if you haven’t said these things yourself, you’ve certainly heard them during your game play…
#10. I can’t pick a tile to save my life!
#9. Is this a One Bam?
#8. Worst Charleston ever!
#7. Is it my wall?
#6. Oh my God, I really hate this game!
#5. I so miss that hand from last year.
#4. Can I steal on this pass?
#3. I’ve totally gone the wrong way!
#2. The same tiles are going around and around.
And the #1 thing you’re likely to hear at your next Mah Jongg game:
Does this set have Jokers!l??!!
Oh so true!!! Thanks for a fun way to start the day
Oh, so very cute and true! I have said everyone of these and more!!! Lol
Yes, yes, yes! And there’s the ever-popular, “No
-o-o! I was just one away!”
I definitely have to add that one!!!
So excited you used my fun Facebook posting. You made my day. A number of people have already sent me sweet notes! Have an awesome day 👍😘❤️🀄️ Barney
Hi Barney – I didn’t credit this to you because I had no idea that you wrote this. I rarely go on FB so I had no idea that you had posted it. It was sent to me by my student and dear friend, Martha who had received from her friend Ellen. I NEVER post anything without permission from the person who sent it to me or posted it on the Internet and that is exactly what I did with Martha. Your friend Elizabeth has already chastised me. Hmmm, I suspect lots of things on the Internet are never credited to the first author. At any rate, this was not something that I did to slight you.
OMG…please. I did not feel slighted AT ALL. It’s all good. And the best part is the Mahj world really had some fun too! Over 350 people wrote comments and provided their own favorite “top 10” comment. Fun reading for sure. HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE. Barney
Good Morning –
I just wanted to make sure you knew the origins of this post. Barney Gallassio posted this on Facebook last week. He’s a great player, an enthusiastic collector, and a nice guy as well.
Best regards, Elizabeth

“If I get enough to jokers, I can win this hand.”
“I think we are in each other’s hands”
“This is a diabolical game; I don’t know why I play it.”
“Can I use a joker for a pair?”
. . .and when I lose, “It’s good to be a Supporting Player,,, they give Oscars for that!”
Hi Diane – I am going to do a second posting using these, if that is okay with you – I love them!
Hi Elizabeth – thanks for your comment but I didn’t get this from Barney Gallassio. It was sent to me by my student and friend, Martha. It was sent to her by a women by the name of Ellen. I rarely go on FB so I never saw a posting about this by Barney. Additionally, I NEVER post something without getting permission from the person who posted it or emailed it to me, which is exactly what I did with Martha. I think everyone knows that about me. I will contact Barney directly and speak to him about this.
So many for one I just love, “last week I was only one away and I was sure I was a winner, but she called m.j. and my tile was right there, next to be picked!”
there is always the player who wants to let you know what her hand was last week!!
I think I said at least seven of them on Tuesday. Thanks for the laught!
I love the game and enjoyed all the oh-so-true comments. The socializing is one of the best parts and how much you learn about your fellow players!
