Also, “No offense” I don’t think I’ve ever heard that spoken by someone who wasn’t saying something offensive. The general translation seems to be “I’m a massive jerk but because I said ‘no offense’ then if you get offended you’ll look like the bad guy instead of me. That’s how much of a jerk I am 🙄”

A lot of things people say about having kids, like:
"it's different when they're your own"
"you'll understand when you have your own" (I'm 42 now and decided at about 13 not to have any, but thanks)
"You can't possibly know love until you have a child" (eye roll for days)
"I didn't truly love my husband until our child was born" (that's sad! WTF)
"EVERYTHING I do in life, I do it for my child" (really, you go to work, pay taxes, care for your health because of your child ONLY - you would just rot in a gutter if you weren't a parent? Interesting flex)
I have also met people who seem totally normal but say "I'd be dead if it weren't for my child(ren)" with total seriousness and I find that SO alarming!!
I also hate a lot of things I consider health woo or diet lingo. I will probably be "wooed" for this if not for the above, which is fine. But even if some of it has truth to it, I just don't want to hear it honestly...
- anything about gut health (mainly because it's usually from someone who read 1 article about gut health and is now an expert)
- mentions of essential oils to treat actual diseases
- diets targeting specific body parts
- "it's so simple - just eat when you're hungry" (thanks but not everyone has good hunger/satiety cues, that plan got me to 300 lb in the past)
- ANY product sold through an MLM
- fat loss and toning done with special products like pills, bars, or shakes and not as part of a larger program with actual diet & workouts
- "it doesn't matter what you eat as long as you're eating clean"
- "diet soda will make you gain weight"
