Have you ever wondered what are some of the funny or cringe-worthy lines that people in different industries have to deal with? Here are some things that it’s best not to say to them, unless you want them to come after you for your life!

“Can I have a few more days to work on this? I know it’s past the deadline but I haven’t written anything yet.”

“We would like to be featured in the Dec issue – could you to send us copies of the Dec issue for this year now? What do you mean it’s only Oct?”

“I would like you to remove your opinions – just focus on our brand and the details as per the press release,”

“What do you mean you don’t do sales as well?”

Digital Media Analyst
“I wish I had your job – all that you do for the entire day is get to be on social media!”

“Once you are done with this shoot now, can I have the edited set of pictures by tonight/tomorrow?”

“I want this to be in purple – not too light, not too dark, not too red, not too blue – you know what I mean?”

Ad agency
“I would like you to refer to this and create something that is exactly the same as this, but you cannot copy it and it has to be different,”

“Since you are doing freelance jobs, it’s free right?”
