#9 No offense
Your next remark will be offensive. Either own it or don’t say it at all, really. There are moments when it’s necessary to be excessively assertive. Simply not saying anything is advised at times. Don’t hesitate if you feel you must express a viewpoint that may not be favorably welcomed.
On the other hand, perhaps you shouldn’t be saying something if you feel the need to begin it with “No offense.” Don’t act rudely. Whatever the case, saying “no offense” makes you sound like you don’t care about what others might feel.
No offense expressed is not a sufficient justification for offensive remarks that are immediately followed by an apology.
