No offense, but this will offend you

Please stop F-ing using "no offense" as a disclaimer for your filterless mouth!

I'm on a rant today. It drives me insane when I hear or in the blogging world see someone say, "no offense...but". Okay awesome since you said "no offense" that rude comment didn't hurt my feelings.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. DUH! But if you're going to share your opinion don't try and sugarcoat it man the F up and own that shiz-nat!


Whatever happened to "constructive criticism" or honestly just saying things nicely. For example, when I was 17 I got this wild urge to die my natural blonde hair basically black. People shared their opinions right and left and I remember a friend of mine who was older and wiser than me saying, "I understand you wanting to try going darker but you did have very pretty blonde hair". Notice she didn't say, "no offense, but I hate your hair like that, makes you look like a skank".

This is an epidemic in the blogging world, people think they're all bad and ballsy because they're behind a keyboard.....



In other news, we just got a Cheesecake Factory in town and don't worry I've visited twice this week.....so far.

  3. I love ballsy bloggers but I can't agree more! Own what you're going to say and be responsible for the potential reactions (good and bad) you'll get! Saying "No offense but..." is like saying, "I'm going to say something that I know is going to upset you but I've included a disclaimer so I'm no longer responsible for how my words affect you." Enjoy Cheesecake Factory! It is a VERY good thing the closest one is almost three hours away! Their carrot cake is addicting!

    1. Right? Since when is a warning sufficient?! I haven't had good carrot cake in awhile. My mom once made one for a church potluck and used my porcelain bunnies on it as decoration.....tacky with a big T! :)

    1. I'm starting to think it's everyone's favorite place and for good reason it's a great restaurant, like if you can't find something on their menu that you like there is something wrong with you:)

  5. Amen, sister! FYI, if you like Salmon, the Miso Salmon is my all-time fave meal there :)
