Some seemingly ordinary workplace phrases in emails can be perceived as judgemental.

Getting work emails is the worst, right? (Or is it just us?) Sending work emails that convey the urgency of the message and yet doesn’t seem pushy is a skill that many people have yet to master. 

A recent survey by software company Adobe lists the nine most hated phrases in an email sent by colleagues. The survey, which polled 1,000 working professionals, showed that a quarter of them despise the phrase “Not sure if you saw my last email” the most. (Yes, we saw the last email, we just don’t want to respond yet ... geez.)
