Hello everyone:

I understand that the most common way of saying that you would not wish someone to be involved in a conversation with an angry person is (a), but I was just wondering if the other sentences I have suggested would also be possible/accepted.


a. You don’t want to be on the receiving end of his anger.

b. I wouldn’t wish his anger on you.

c. I wouldn’t wish you to be on the receiving end of his anger.

d. I wouldn’t wish you his anger.

e. May you not be on the receiving end of his anger.


Thanks

    d is wrong, and e sounds like a prayer! Otherwise they’re okay, but the original is the most idiomatic.
