"No offense but..."

I hate when people start off sentences like that! They assume it gives them permission to offend you on purpose! If you say "no offense but..." that means you are highly aware about what you are going to say and you KNOW it is going to affect that person negatively. Then why bother to say it to begin with?!
  1. Be considerate of other people's feelings. Think about how you would feel if that were you.
  2. Be mindful and aware of that persons personality as well as yours.
  3. Think before you act!
How to react to these situations if you are the victim:
  1. Be honest about how you feel.Do not embarrass the person in front of a large group rather, take them aside and speak to them about how that made you feel.
  2. Be patient, and learn to forgive.( This takes a lot of practice)
