I think we can all agree that some people are just annoying. It might be the way they speak to you, or how they treat others, but sometimes, you just wanna tell them to “F*ck off!” We all have those moments! But sometimes, you might just wanna tell someone off without making a big fuss about it, or making a scene. That’s why today, we’re gonna be looking at the art of insulting someone, how to do it politely – especially in a professional environment – like the classy ladies we are. We scoured the internet for some polite (and sassy) ways you can tell someone off:
1. “If that is your understanding of the current agreement, we need to revisit the language so that your expectation levels can be set more appropriately.”
This can be used when someone at your job is being nit picky about your work or being an unreasonable br*t!
2. Put up your hand.
The best way to tell someone to shut up is to say nothing at all. Wait for them to finish talking, and then move on.
3. “With all due respect, I feel this conversation is not going anywhere. It’s clear that we are not equipped to agree with one another. Take care.”
This is a great way to put an end to disagreements where you’re just talking in circles. Bye b*tch!
4. “Best of luck to you and hope life treats you the way you deserve.”
This is basically another way of saying “Have a nice life” with a bit more sassiness to it.
5. “What’s your name again?”
To show them how insignificant they are and how little their opinion matters to you. Sorry, can you repeat that?
6. “I’m terribly sorry you feel that way. Please feel free to contact our complaints department”
This can be especially useful when you’re dealing with annoying clients – let them be someone else’s problem!
7. “Hey, I really have to go. I’m really busy lately, I’ll call you when I’m less busy.”
This one’s useful if you wanna tell them to f*ck off without necessarily burning a bridge. We all need get away from negative energy sometimes, and that’s totally okay.
8. Start the message with “Please be advised” and end with “govern yourself accordingly”.
Most commonly used in lawyer letters, this one’s for the professionals who want to tell someone to f*ck off via email. Just pure passive aggressiveness.
9. “I have outgrown you.”
For when you don’t have the mental capacity or energy to deal with their toxic bullsh*t anymore. It’s time to leave them in the past gurl.
10. “I’m going to f*ck off now, I think you should too.”
Technically… we’re not directly telling them off. But it still feels good to say it sometimes, even if it’s directed to ourselves.
