T3 was like that. She had an absolute genius for saying things that appeared on the face of it very confrontational or hurtful, but saying them in a way that really wasn't confrontational or hurtful at all.

Then she went a bit too far, and in addition to the hurtful thing she said that day, a score of other really hurtful things she had said came to mind. I wasn't so much really hurt by them as amazed that I hadn't been at the time.

She was very good at beveling and polishing the truth, as I much prefer. But in the end, it added up to too high a number of "truths", and I was unable to escape the conclusion that she didn't much like me.

Even the best beveler and polisher needs to make sure to balance negative and positive to some degree.
