6 Things Working Women Should Never Write in Email
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 4:15 PM

1. “I’m sorry . . .”
I’m not sorry anymore! We have to stop apologizing for asking people to do things, particularly when it’s something that’s part of their job.

2. “Just . . .”
We need to stop using this word as a way to weaken a request or our opinion.

3. “This might be a stupid question but . . .”
Like they said in school, there are no stupid questions. Well, sometimes there are—but ask, don’t caveat.

4. “If you want my two cents . . . ”
A man usually gives his three cents, and he certainly doesn’t offset his thoughts with this phrase.

5. “I may be wrong but . . .”
Don’t lessen the impact of what you say before you say it.

6. “Does this make sense?”
I do this one a lot, and I can’t stand it. Trust that what you wrote makes sense. Don’t openly question in email whether or not your thinking is sensical.
