Charientismus


Charientismus (kar-i-en-tia’-mus): Mollifying harsh words by answering them with a smooth and appeasing mock.

Sorry! I try my best to do my best to please you, and you try your best to do your best to please you! It’s time for this relationship to stop making you-turns and and try making some me-turns!  Better yet, let’s make a we-turn!
