Please stop writing the phrase “here’s the thing”.

Here’s the thing - that phrase is generally unnecessary and adds nothing to your writing. This is written to no one in particular, just an observation.

Also, “And you’re surprised?” is not an adequate response to anything. Don’t respond at all if this is the best you’ve got. This is written to no one in particular, just an observation.
