  3. SD: Awesome catch. It is so bitchy. It's close cousin: No Offense, but...

    GKL: That is a very bitchy way to start an email...

  4. I'm an "apparently" abuser.

    Hot Lemon stole mine: "Listen, asshole."

    If you say "I don't mean to be rude," chances are you're about to say the rudest thing ever. Or "Don't take this the wrong way, but..."

  5. What about "I'm telling you this because I love you..."

  8. Good list! And skylersdad is dead on with the "all due respect" line--especially in the military or law enforcement, you know you're about to receive some passive aggressive bullshit when you hear that one.

    I'll add:

    -Evidently...
    -Since you...
    -Listen, ...
    -Not to be rude, but...
    -Hey fucko...

  9. I love those long bitchy narrative emails that begin with something like "when I arrived at work this morning, SOMEONE had..." etc.
