the worst sentence you can hear

November 29, 2014

What’s the worst sentence you can have said to you? In the ordinary course of events, I mean: not things like “I’m going to tip you into this vat of hydrochloric acid”.

I’ve decided there are two leading candidates: they are “Can I have a word with you?” and “I’m afraid it’s been declined, sir.”

Any more?

  1. “Ditto.”

  2. “We need to talk” is the personal equivalent of “Can I have a word with you?”. Which is worse will depend on which you value more, relationships or career.

    “I think you should sit down.”
