"That was close. Ideally, you would..."

"Interesting concept.:sc You know, I would try ________ instead."

I prefer to be straight forward and say "What the hell are you thinking??"

11-18-2010, 10:47 PM

A couple of days ago, my boss said something to my team and asked "Alfa, do you have any additional comments?"

"Yes, as Boss said..."

"Alfa, that was totally opposite of what I said, but it was definitely the most polite way anyone has ever told me that what I said was totally full of $h!t."
(luckily, he was laughing as he said that, lol)

Alfa. I answered his weird word thread wrong and he told me "Ideally you want to drop one letter. But it was a good effort!"

I said, "That's just a nice way to tell me I was wrong!"

And then he made the thread. Snort.

I like to be subtle and say something like: Are you fucking crazy?

If its a man...I would say something like "what the fu*& are you talking about...wrong!!!"

If its a woman..."You're absolutely right." :sc

Umm... are you crazy? This will never work... come on... now I got to do it over again... What? too nice?

"That's not exactly what I had in mind"
"I'm not entirely sure that's going to work"
"Ok, but let's just think about this a little more..."
"You might want to look at this again"
"From my experience, if you don't mind me saying, I would..."

I'd say... the person that wrote this sign is a genius compared to you.

i am as subtle as a flying brick. so thanks for the ideas, all :)

With kids, I get them to drop the words "wrong"..."stupid"..."lying" and pick up easily substituted vocabulary like "mistaken" and "been misinformed"...it's not easy when you're brighter than everyone around you and you're 6.

Congratulations! Your answer came in 2nd.

12-03-2010, 07:29 PM
Are you a fucking moron or do I just think you never get it right?

Oh, you said 'nice ways' - You're wrong, as usual. Don't take it hard. stupid people have a place in the world - don't know where, exactly.

12-03-2010, 08:47 PM

"If you were right, I'd totally agree with you."

12-13-2010, 06:17 AM
