Positive:

Person one: "Would you like a free ticket to the concert tonight?"

Person two: "I would love one! I'll pick you up so you don't have to waste gas."

Negative:

Person one: "I can see the Freshman 15 hit you pretty hard."

Person two: "I can see from your bruises your boyfriend has been hitting you pretty hard too."
