#286 – Artificial Politeness

“Not to brag but…” You’re bragging.

“No offense but…” I’m offended.

“Not to be a nag but…” You’re being a nag.

Starting a statement by saying what you don’t want to be or do is a surefire way of being or doing just that. My rebuttal: “Not to not give a shit but…” I don’t give a shit.
