The art of conversation

I found a list of "Conversational cheap shots", or things one shouldn't say when engaged in a conversation, but my, oh my, aren't these familiar quotes! Especially sentences such as "I used to think that way when I was your age." and "You're new here, aren't you?" have crossed my path, and the reason for this is that I'm a young woman, no doubt. I have to mention my "favorite" one though it is in Swedish: Lilla gumman. Very disparaging and incapacitating!

Update: Det kan ha varit en freudian slip, trötthet eller nåt annat. Men det var ju "Lilla vännen" jag avsåg att skriva, inte "Lilla gumman". Det står för något helt annat, åtminstone för mig!
