    Hi Friends,

    Those of us who have interacted with Americans would know how much they try to avoid being harsh and direct. They tend to sweeten even message such that it is taken easily by the other individual. I want to share a few that I came across. Please feel free to add yours as well!

    While asking to leave a meeting?

    Once, a bunch of my peers gathered for a top level strategy meeting. It was clear to the Vice President that we were mistakenly invited to such a confidential meeting. He could have used some direct language while asking us to leave. Instead he said, "Looks like we might be grappling with some complex issues. It might be better if we give your time back"
