No offense but… Not to be rude… Don’t take this the wrong way…
In other words, brace yourself because I guarantee that whatever is coming next will be offensive, rude, and wrong. Well, maybe not wrong—it could actually be true—but you can bet it’s not going to be pleasant. Personally, I’ve never ever heard anything positive come after one of those prefaces.
No offense, but are you really going to eat all that?
Not to be rude or anything but you kinda smell like frogs.
Don’t take this the wrong way but you’re seriously going to wear those shoes?
Those are just greasy ways of being hostile, harsh and unkind under the pretext of being tactful, diplomatic and sensitive. They’re so slick that the recipient usually feels that they’re being piloted by a superior being that has their best interest at heart which not to be rude is bullshit. (No offense on my language.)
Let me break this down for you because, not to be rude, you might be stupid.
