Listen, no disrespect but…
Shockingly, almost everything that follows this phrase sounds entirely disrespectful. Sometimes it’s cock-your-eyebrow disrespectful, sometimes more of a throw-a-glass-of-water-in-their-face disrespectful. Either way, it’s rarely something you’re anxious to hear.
No disrespect but…
…Aunt Sue’s stuffing is more moist, you should ask for her recipe.
…aren’t those shoes a little, um, old?
…there’s no way you’re dropping me off in front of their house. No way.
…pink and purple don’t really go together, what were they thinking??
…those darling little cousins of yours are the best birth control there is. Seriously.
You wanna see someone who thinks they’ve got license to say any damn thing in their head? That’ll be the idiot who spouts off “no disrespect but…” every other breath.
Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “ect.” Find a word with the letters “ect” in it, and base your post on that word. (Not to be confused with “et cetera,” which is “etc.”) Enjoy!
