Appreciate The Offer But....

 

There was a recent post by 

Leanne Smith titled choose your words wisely 

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!"

This is a good response, especially now where we should be "politically correct" with our words.

Thanks so much for referencing my posting Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland . Apologies I did not get to it yesterday.  The real estate business has been rather busy out here in NW AZ.  Again so truly appreciate your kindness.

Why not choose to be polite? It only takes a second to respond with kindness.  As always, like your style. D

Margaret, "appreciate the offer (or opportunity) but no thanks" is my new line.  This courteous, positive approach feels so much better than "remove this number from your call list."  It's the little things we do that make a difference, and they add up over time.  Thanks for this.
