.וכמה מלקויות מבלי רצועה של עגל יש ביד האדון המצוה על זה - Sefer HaChinuch this week.

(Full context below)
והעובר על זה והכאיב את חברו בדברים באותן שפרשו חכמינו זכרונם לברכה בבעל תשובה ובחולה וכיצא בהן עבר על לאו זה, אבל אין לוקין עליו, לפי שאין בו מעשה. וכמה מלקויות מבלי רצועה של עגל יש ביד האדון המצוה על זה, יתעלה ויתברך

Once – at a hotel in the Catskills – a young woman gave an introduction to her question by asking a pre-question: “Is it okay if I ask something that might offend you?” My answer was simple and to the point; “Of course you can… ask whatever you want… but is it okay if my answer offends you?” She decided not to ask her question. Oh, man! I was actually looking forward to that one.
