Bless your heart

Everybody in the South has at least heard this expresstion before; Bless your heart, bless their heart, bless his or her heart.  It's an expression that makes you sound less like your talking bad about someone.
"That Jimmie knows how to repair engine blocks, but he ain't got a lick of buisness sense, bless his heart."
It can also convey sympathy.
"You've just been through so much lately with your dad passing and your son's surgery . . . bless your heart."
It can be used multiple ways and you'll hear it anywhere from the grocery store, to the beauty shop to the tire store.
