The web seems to be flooded lately with articles titled "(# of) Things Never To Say To (someone of a particular profession/situation in life)."

It seems there are two lessons we need to learn: 1) Choose your words carefully. Our words can hurt others, especially when we're careless with them. 2) Start with the assumption that people are NOT trying to offend you. People are going to say potentially irritating things. You have the choice to read offense into it or to write it off as a harmless misunderstanding. You'll probably be a lot happier if you do the latter. (97)
