14 Words Which Are Actually Polite But Sound Offensive

Updated on 1 January, 2018 at 12:52 pm By

Let’s say for example you share some good news with someone and instead of a “Thank you” the response you get is “Good for you”. Would that make you feel happy? Wouldn’t it be a little impolite or even rude? There are many such phrases which though could be referred to as courtesy words can be a bit off-putting.
