    There has only been one time where I was deliberately mean...or rather, I wasn't trying to be mean, exactly, but I felt like telling the person exactly what I thought of her. I was in this guild on an MMORPG I used to play and the guild leader and I were kinda friends, but she was one of those extremely negative people and she would go on about how everyone hated her in the game. Everyone in the guild would comfort her and tell her she was likable and that she was just imagining that everyone hated her. I usually said nothing, because I knew exactly why people treated her that way. One day I just got tired of her whining and told her all of my observations about her behavior. She blocked me after that.
    Oh, well, now I have done stuff like that. When there's someone totally annoying and oblivious, and they've made everyone's lives completely miserable, I will finally get to the point where I feel like they really do need to know the truth. I won't say things designed to hurt them, per se ("Could it be that no one likes you because you're an insufferable hag?)--but I will enlighten them as to how their behavior pushes people away, and at that point, I'm not sugarcoating it.

    I was having a heated discussion with my mom last weekend about a problem she's having with my little sister, who is 15. She was considering taking her out of school which I do not think would be a good idea. I suggested that she do some activities outside of school and my mom said "we've tried that! she was in two church youth groups last year!" I responded with "Well, maybe the lesson here is that you only meet douchebags in church youth groups." She cried. I kind of regret it maybe a little.

    It's not nice to say those things about people, but I've been part of youth groups and you do get a few of those in there. Accuracy isn't always nice...

    The last mean thing I did happened last year in my internship seminar at the university. This 'class' was only scheduled to meet about six times the entire semester, and attendance was required at each session if we wanted full credit. Anyway, on the day of the third seminar, we were informed that the class was going to be lead by one of the administrators (a really annoying ESFJ woman) because the professor had had an emergency and they didn't want to cancel the session.

    After doing all of the required stuff (attendance, signing up for presentations, etc...), this woman started to try and lecture about the reading...and she was just god-awful. All she wanted to do was talk about what she thought about the book, and she would talk down anyone who presented a different opinion. Since I didn't even read the book the whole way through and had already taken care of what I needed to for the class, I decided that I should probably just leave and save myself the general annoyance. I got up and was heading for the door when she spotted me and asked why I was leaving and if I was coming back (she knew us all by name since she was the admin. for the program). I told her I had somewhere else to be (which she knew was a lie because it was almost 10:00 at night) and that I didn't plan on coming back. The look on her face after I answered was enough to indicate that I'd offended her deeply. She's not been friendly since (not that she was ever all that friendly towards me in the first place).

    I felt kind of bad at the time, but not enough to make me return to my seat .

    I've said many terribly mean things to people but I think the one I said at the start of this thread is the only one I feel bad about.

    It isn't even the meanest thing I've said, maybe it's because in retrospect I realize she was just doing her job.

    Some of the harshest things I've said have been to my mother.

    Actually now that I think about it they've almost all been to women.
    I don't particularly understand why you've asked other people if they've ever had a regret for something they've said, because you don't behave as if being offensive is really that big of a deal. Maybe it isn't to you, but then why bother asking if anyone else has ever felt that way.

    Being offensive and being dishonest and sneaky is not the same thing.

    I tend to hold back a lot, sometimes whomever I'm with won't say anything offensive and somehow I come up with the most sarcastic asshole thing to say-- It's not like I even think about it, it just appears instantly. Although, it is VERY fun when what they say is offensive.

    Funny thing, just recently I called somebody a doormat, and that person fell silent. I mean, the language was too strong and tactless for what I was trying to get across, and I let slip, which I don't normally do...Felt awful.
