With No Due Respect Whatsoever

I read three articles today in which people were quoted as saying, "with all due respect."

Does that phrase even have a meaning anymore? Because you KNOW that when someone says, "with all due respect" what they really mean is, "For some reason - which God will not permit me to understand - I must defer to your undeserved authority, despite the fact that I could do your job one better with my hands tied behind my back, blinded in one eye, and hobbling around on a wooden leg." Wow. Hands tied. One blind eye. Peg-leg. Sound kinda like a pirate, doesn't it? Throw a parrot on his shoulder and you're set.

So I guess what "all due respect" really REALLY means is even Captain Hook is better at life than you. And he was eaten by a crocodile. And wore bloomers. And a feather in his cap which he called "macaroni."

Okay, I think I've mixed too many references...

In China, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups. The Chinese, who call this land "home," and the expats who migrate here. My name is Rachel. I am an expat. These are my stories.

This is a satirical site intended for the entertainment of an online audience. None of the features on this site are real (except in my own distorted view of reality), nor are they intended to harm the subjects mentioned. This site uses fictional names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized or when I choose to use this site as a platform for someone's public humiliation (usually my own). Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental (or purposeful, but with good reason).

Despite the trivial nature of my random daily (sometimes weekly) musings, I hope you enjoy your stay at my site. If there is anything you need, don't hesitate to ring up the concierge, because I just travel in style like that. Have a pleasant stay and I hope that you will come see us again soon!
