But, but, but, but, I'm highly offended by most of these posts. But I apologize. It's really no problem.

The people making these policies are less intelligent overall in social skills, so they assume all others will not be smart or mature enough to ignore such pettiness. Those making these policies don't comprehend that what seems to trigger them, do not bother other's and that these things aren't even something the average person would even bother thinking about.

These people are (willing) victims of social engineering and have become so far engulfed in political correctness, they can no longer see reality without creating mental and emotional band aids to put on everything.

I just don't understand how sensitive people have become I guess.


It is because it is getting to the stupid point.

Maybe California will annex Michigan.

But I use "I Apologize" with no problem all day every day....

I will always prefer "I'm sorry you got all bent out of shape about it."

Think it really is some mild form of mental illness mate - amazing that actual State Universities are promoting this ideology to students though.

Suppose it's only going to get worse but here's a great short film predicting the future of the education system in America:




Cheers.

This is absolutely ludicrous and one of the saddest yet funniest things I have read today.




The training told students that they should replace the apparent “triggers” with “calmers.” For example, “but” should be replaced with “and,” “I apologize” should be replaced with “I am truly sorry,” and “no problem” should be replaced with “you’re welcome, it was my pleasure.”


So I can say "I am truly sorry and you're welcome it was my pleasure." However, I cannot say "I apologize but no problem?"

How about you worry about getting a f'n education you losers! Is that triggering enough for you?

I made Indian Butter chicken last night and sent my husband a picture of it.

He responded with “you said but”

I like big buts and I cannot lie.

Soon though, we will be limited to clicking sounds and slow non-triggering arm movements to communicate with other genderless ugly bags of mostly water.

Sad, but funny as #.

If what bothers me doesn't bother you?????? You Zir are a Nazi! This is the age of those who preach having a conversation means the damn opposite. FIRE UP THE OVENS BOYZ, time to eliminate those who are guilty of "Wrong Think".

You mean the standard politician apology? "I'm sorry if *you* were offended ..."

In other words, I didn't do anything wrong. You were just being a butt head about it.

"Can I help you?" by the pedantic "How may I help you".

Which the latter is grammatically correct
Can means "able to"
So , the former is saying - "Am I able to help you ?"
Just sayin
