Language is the product of our thoughts, it represents us and speaks for ourselves. So, we need to be a bit careful while employing it especially at a formal environment. Here are a few phrases you should use only when you want to quit your job!
Using curse words for every situation does not just mark you as vulgar, but as someone who lacks the creativity to come up with a better insult.
“Yes.” (When you really mean no)
Telling someone you will do something when you have zero intention to do so shows disregard for what other people want.
As someone rightly said, “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”
“I thought you were going to do that.”
The words of someone who just assumes responsibilities onto other without communicating.
Bluntly shutting down new ideas without even giving a chance to explain the problems with the idea shows an unwillingness to adapt.
Sometimes there are unfortunate failures of miscommunication. Then you claim to have completely misunderstood the assignment. But this is often frequently used by people who have made a promise and are now trying to back out.
“Sorry for being late.”
Punctuality is one of the most important things for any business. If you’re not on time, you show that you don’t care about their time.
“Because I’m in charge.”
This does not convince people that you should be in charge, and just incurs resentment and irritation at your high-handed ways.
Far too many people think that “sorry” is an all-excusing grace for their mistakes. Fix the problem, don’t just say “sorry.”
