Sorry . . .

4 years ago

Please don't.

Please don't do it.

Really, it's not necessary.

Please, please, please!

Don't apologize for asking a question or making a suggestion.

Just ask the question.

Just offer the suggestion

You sound so much more powerful when you don't introduce your question with an apology.

And I'm more interested in listening to your suggestion when it doesn't begin with "I'm sorry"

And by the way, your question is good and so is your suggestion.

Thank you,

Sincerely your boss.
