I.e. My supervisor came to me today, complaining of his live-in girlfriend berating him about his purchases of practical clothes he needed, and got a good deal on for $100 total for 4 or 5 pairs of pants and several shirts. He then said, "I'm sorry, but she went out last weekend and spent over $200 on some costume for her and a friend. So who is she to speak up?"
I knew he didn't mean he was sorry, he knew it. So why did he say that? I'm just curious, people tend to do that often.
