We’ve talked a lot about apologizing before here at Too Nice. But lately, there have been more and more articles and posts about what not to say, and say instead, so as not to offend, or even come off as, well, too nice. We are becoming more aware of words and phrases that might offend to the point where we are afraid to speak!  Here are a few links from around the Web on the topic. But beware, you might have a particularly quiet weekend after reading the following:

– A list of language that is “preferred” vs. “problematic”

– Death of “the tomboy”

– Sorry to interrupt…

– Don’t write emails like this

– I didn’t know this!
