Phrases I've Stopped Emailing at Work

I've noticed these phrases are used by almost exclusively girls, and I've been trying to stop.
  1. Preceding a question with "I was just wondering..." or "Just wanted to know..."
    Instead of asking the question directly
  2. Starting off an email with "Sorry to bother you, but..."
    When it's a legitimately necessary/important email
  3. "Just a thought!"
    After I state an opinion or idea
  4. Phrases like: "If you happen to have time, could you maybe..."
  5. My main inspiration?
