A few things I don't need to hear anymore
-"I'm not going to lie to you"
So the assumption is everything else you've said is...???
"I use to think/believe/be like/do that"
So the assumption is that you've moved on...or past where I currently am? On the surface this feels like empathy, dig a little deeper and I think you'll find condescension.
(fill in the blank any question to themselves followed by their answer) Does it bug me when people ask themselves a question and then answer it? Yup
"Quit trying to steal my wallet Sean" - if I had a dollar for every time I've heard that...or for every dollar I've stolen...
