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.
- •"That makes perfect sense."It may not, but I'm just being uber agreeable.
- •"I'm not married to it."Must not sound too pushy about an idea.
- •"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
- •"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.
