No Offense But...

This (along with To Be Honest With You) is another saying I just don't get. If you have to say "No Offense But," don't you think that whatever follows that statement just shouldn't be said? It's like you walk up to some fat dude and say something like, "No offense man but don't you think that King sizing your meal might not be in your best interest?" Or better yet, "No offense bud but do you really think that ordering a Diet Coke with a Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Extra Large Fries and 2 Apple Pies for $1 will make a difference, why not go for the gold."

My point is why even bother saying something like that? If you have to open your mouth and say something that could offend the person you're talking to, just say it and live with the consequences, don't use some chickenshit phrase like, "No offense but." If you want to call some dude fat, call him fat. No offense but this post probably wasn't my best. Don't hold your breath for better stuff!

They probably just need to be more specific. For example, if it's large friend eating a large meal and it's unhealthy, you're more than likely expressing some concern. In that case you should say "I'm concerned about your health, don't you think that might not be in your best interest"? Of course, guys can banter more.

This doesn't work with women. We'll still be offended.

Btw, you order the diet cola so you CAN get the double quarter pounder. No sense in getting another 160 cals and 44 g of sugar (or double that depending on the drink size) when you can save that for the meal ;).

No offense, but...

1) I tagged you on my blog.

2) You need to post more often.

Hope that you the reason you aren't posting is that you are busy having too much fun with your family.
