No Offense But ...


This is so true. Same with "Don't take this the wrong way but ..." or "I don't mean to be rude but ..."

Also, I thought "Offence" was incorrect, but apparently that's the spelling used in Britain. Which is just stupid. No offense, of course...

:)


Thanks to DustBunny Mike!

LOL! No offence but the Queen's English came first and is the correct spelling, hurrmph (always got caught between countries with the English/Amercian spelling thing}.

Another phrase I wonder about - "to tell you the truth" - in my head I say, "you mean everything else you've said is a lie?!"

My pet hate is 'with all due respect'. This is usually followed by out and out rudeness and slander. I tend to make a point of saying 'With no due respect' if I really want to dismiss someone. It generally throws them for a second, but then they totally understand what I think of them.

I remember people in college saying things like, "I love him to death, but ... he's a dysfunctional, alcoholic asshole." Or something like that.
