Today I realized that when someone uses one of the phrases, "no pun intended"; "needless to say"; or "not to be rude..." that they are actually lying 100% of the time. Liar. Liar. Pants. On. FIRE!!!
A fun example of this is an email I received in response to several emails I sent to my entire email list requesting prayer for my dad. After several updates, I received a message that only read:
"not to be rude, but who is this and why am i getting these?"
The email was signed from someone who is a Patient Liaison for Behavioral Health where I see my psychiatrist. Apparently another tragic example of the wrong person in the wrong vocation, I guess. I prayed for her anyways, but I didn't want to.
