Things I Say at Work

a.k.a. I know. I know. You don't need to say it. I should be more assertive. There, I said it and I almost feel the need to apologize.
  1. "That makes perfect sense."
    It may not, but I'm just being uber agreeable.
  2. "I'm not married to it."
    Must not sound too pushy about an idea.
  3. "It's not Shakespeare."
    Downplaying anything that I submit in writing. Set the expectations low and then they'll be pleasantly surprised. Oh and by the way, it's better than Shakespeare. Ha! Take that, Bard. I guess you'll have to, 'cause you're dead! Double Ha! Being dead makes it hard to respond. Alright, that's enough. #MoreThanEnough
  4. "If you have any questions, feel free to give me a holler."
    No one has actually ever given me a holler, but I bet they feel better just knowing that I gave them permission.
