Take a few minutes to read it.

 

Words do make a difference, how they sound, how they are delivered, and how they are perceived.

There are times when we get a request that we have no interest. Especially when busy, we may be tempted to  turn it down say something like:

Not interested, leave me alone, remove my name from your email, delete my number, or you fill in the blank.

 

Here is another response that may sound better in a text or email.

 

.No thanks

"Appreciate your offer but no thanks!"
