New pet peeve. Take this down.
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 08:42 PM by Tommy_Carcetti
People who preface an argument with, "I apologize if this offends you..." and then proceed to say something that quite clearly is meant to offend the intended person.

If you offend, that's fine. Free speech, that's your perogative.

But please don't apologize, because you're not sorry. You want to offend, and probably because you are a POS tool dipshit fucking guy/gal.

1. In the same category as "I'm sorry IF I offended you".
No, it's "I'm sorry THAT I offended you".

Some people apparently don't understand the whole point of apologizing.

It is like you are preparing them to be offened. But I don't apologize, I just tell them.
