...Until today I under the impression that if you said something rude it was, well, rude. I'm huge about rude, totally anal about it. I'm always on the little pretties about what's rude, Mr. Pretties for being rude, and complaining about rude people (aka 'ruditudes'.) So now we've got it covered that I'm totally anti-rudeness, for sure.
Now Mr. Pretties exercises a technique which he believes exempts him from being rude. Yes folks, apparently there is a way to dodge the 'R Bomb' once something less than polite exits your mouth. It's really quite simple. You quickly follow it up with either 'Hahaha, just kidding!', 'I'm only teasing you, you have no sense of humour!' or, my personal favorite, 'I'm just telling it like it is.' Yes, it is that simple. Let's review some examples shall we?
Ex 1: 'Wow Jenn, it looks like your pant pockets are screaming, maybe they don't quite fit yet after having the LBP...'
*Insert Angry Face Here*
'Hahaha, just kidding!'
Sure you were...
Ex 2: 'Wow! Does your butt ever look big in those pants!'
*Insert Really Angry Face Here*
'I'm just teasing you! Geez you have no sense of humour!'
Ex 3: 'Damn it Jenn! Sometimes you can be such a slob/knob/snob/blob/corn cob/etc...'
*Insert I Can't Believe You Just Said That Face Here*
'Well, I'm just telling it like it is!'
And that makes it right because......
So there you have it ladies and gentleman, the lamo's way out of being accused of being rude. When they are in fact being rude...
