Signs you are going to say something stupid.I'm not ________, but _________.
If this phrase is about to exist your mouth, or fingers, STOP... and think "Do I actually have tangible evidence? Am I going to be able to present it properly? Are the people in the conversation going to interpret the meaning as it is sent?"
Did you answer yes to all three of these? Good, then you are in a minority of people who don't blurt stupid shit all willy nilly, and separated from:
"I'm not racist, but black people were just born to rob cars."
"I'm not a scientist, but I'm going to argue about global warming based on my lack of evidence, and faith in politicians/ Fox 'News.'"
"I'm not a doctor, but I know exactly what's wrong with you, cause my cousin had similar symptoms."
I think you see where I'm going with this. Unless of course you actually say those things, in which case, I'm not going to waste my time with you.
