The cynic’s guide to social niceties

“No offense, but….”

Translation: “In about one second, I am going to totally, intentionally offend you.”

“None taken.”

Translation: “Offense TOTALLY taken.”

“Hey, how are you?”

Translation: “Just say fine, just say fine, just say fine….”

I’m fine, thanks.”

Translation: “No worries, personal details will not be shared at this time.”

“No worries.”

Translation: “You suck.”

“Why are you getting so defensive?”

Translation: “I derive pleasure out of fucking with you.”

“With all due respect…”

Translation: “With absolute disdain…”

Feel free to add on.

    “Sorry” — means, not at all sorry.

    “Have a good day” — may mean, have a terrible day (depending upon he circumstances.

    “I don’t mean to annoy you but…” = This is going to piss you off but I’m going to say it anyway.

    I say “you’re welcome” when I do something nice for someone like let them through or hold a door open for them and they don’t say thanks.
