put a spin on it!

I'm constantly impressed by my boss's ability to word things Just Right; even when relaying bad news, she always comes up with a way to get her point across without sounding harsh or disappointing. Today, for example, she was trying to speak to someone who kept interrupting her. Being the boss, she could have simply told them to 'be quiet' 'stop talking' (or heaven forbid, to 'shut up') But instead she replied, 

"please indulge my need for silence"

Such the very perfect thing to say! Now that's she's nailed the wording for me, I think I'll be using that one quite often in future...
