    Welcome to Using English.

    You'll see a lot of "offended by" perhaps some "offended at" -- "offended with" seems the least likely.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***

    Your appreciation is welcome, tory, but there is no need to write a new post to say Thank you. Simply click the Thank button on any posts you find helpful. It means that we don't have to open the thread again to read your new post and then find that it doesn't include any new information or an additional question. It saves everybody's time.
