Look‚Ä¶ there is a certain etiquette that one must have while walking in public. Don‚Äôt spit on someone‚Äôs shoe, don‚Äôt go on a crop dusting spree, and, most importantly, DO NOT bump into someone without acknowledging what you‚Äôve just done! This is probably the most unforgivable offense that you can pull off in the streets. I‚Äôm talking about the streets, not the ‚Äústreets,‚Äù ok?!
There are certain phrases that sound like you are being very respectful when, in all actuality, they are very rude and meant to be insulting. You know which ones they are because you have used them on a number of occasions. I don‚Äôt know who the first person was who coined the phrase ‚Äúno offense,‚Äù but he/she was a jerk. In essence, when you premise a statement by saying ‚Äúno offense,‚Äù you are preparing that person to be insulted right then and there.
I had heard about them. I had even seen them from a distance. I had never personally encountered a close talker until recently. I just happen to work with one for a day.
