Its always interesting in the throws of conversation when people throw out the line no offense. I had a look at your mother the other day and she looked like she had a small turn then perished in front of my eyes..... no offense. Meh you look like you have robbed a section of street urchins with those clothes.....no offense. Mother: you know that's not your real dad......no offense. Your sister smiles like she has the clap/herpes I would get that looked at.....no offense.When does no offense become a get get out clause for insulting people,wilderbeast,wild animals and such. The only people who could techically get away with saying no offence are doctors and they would not need to punctuate a sentence with no offense. Your grandmother looks like shes gone stiff maybe had rigor mortis of the face but she's fine now.
