Did you ever notice?

Have you ever noticed that when people say, "I'm sorry but...", they aren't sorry about what they're about to say?

And when they say, "I hate to say this but...", really they don't hate to say it?

Update: Here's a good one that came in via the comments section from Madhan - whatever comes after "IMHO" is usually not a humble opinion.

Comments:

The words that follow IMHO are never humble opinions in most of the cases!! As clueless as you are about the need for such preludes ...

And "let me be completely candid/frank/honest with you" is followed by a lie...
When someone tells me "I hate to say it"", I usually say: "then don't".
