    "I hope you don't take this the wrong way."

    Nowadays, when I hear that opening remark I wave my arms frantically, like an official calling it an incomplete pass. I then make the "Time out!" sign with my hands and proclaim loudly, "Stop! Stop! I WILL take it the wrong way!!".

    Saves a lot of words and drama. Just wished I'd thought of that years ago.

    I just shove a handful of peanut butter in their mouth and say 'I hope you don't take this the wrong way...'

    That’s like someone saying “I’ll be honest with you”, so you have been lying to me all along.

    Heck, you can be John, Paul, George or Ringo for that matter.

    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    We need to have a talk
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Starting with:

    "I think we should see other people" = "You Suck"

    "I just need some space for a while" = "You Suck"

    "How much do you love me?" = "I'm about to say something that's going to result in him/her thinking, You Suck!"
