Have you ever been on the receiving end of a frustrating work email? For most employees, this is a weekly if not daily occurrence. And as much as we’d like to stand up and smash our computer to bits Office Space-style or walk over to our boss and tell them how we really feel, we’re forced to calmly internalize our rage and respond in a professional manner.
Fortunately, there are ways to translate our infuriation through textual subtleties. We’ve all done it, a “per my last email” or “for future reference”. These simple phrases may not sound snarky, but they’re just enough to throw a little shade at your coworker without losing control. One user recently asked the Twitter universe about their favorite professional clap backs and you might just want to take notes.
