Phrases I Fear

There are certain phrases people say that set of red flags and warning bells in my head.

When someone utters the words "I know it's not politically correct..." I know that what immediately follows is going to be offensive.

Beginning your argument with "Everyone knows", "Some say", or "It is suggested" tells me that what's about to come out of your mouth is so crazy, I not only need a tinfoil hat to understand it, but also a whole tinfoil suit.

I used to work with a tech who was a great guy and always willing to share knowledge. You knew you were in for it if you asked him a question and he leaned back in his chair, laced his fingers behind his head and said, "Well, you know..." At that point it was time to take of your jacket, put down whatever you were holding, and get comfortable, because the answer was going to take at least 20 minutes.

AMEN!
...another one is..." I don't mean to offend..."
This always precedes something they KNOW is offensive as can be, but they STILL can't resist SAYing thedarned thing!
