Things I wish I'd phrased differently

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw the man at the next table struggling to sit down. It looked to me like he might appreciate some help, so I offered my assistance. So I said,

"Do you need a hand?"

And as he sat down and I got a good look at him, I saw that he was missing most of both his arms. He was not in the slightest offended by what I said, but boy, do I feel like a jackass.
