Discreet. The way you tell someone which creet you would like to have.

Candor. The opening you use to get out of a can.

I'll be here all week folks. Be sure to be good to your bartender and waitresses. :)

I like the combination of candor and discretion. One can be honest and kind at the same time. The problem with brutal honesty is that it's brutal.
