“You can't be truly rude until you understand good manners.” Rita Mae Brown
Let’s say a coworker comes in and you notice a smell coming from their feet. You may feel if you say something it will embarrass the person to hear it from you. Also you may not be able to get the right words that will be sufficient without being rude. The Site NiceCritic is not meant to be mean in fact it is devoted to delivering small helpful notes to others while keeping it all nice and anonymous. To use this free service is the definition of simple. You choose from a category list, like appearance or general suggestions, of possible prewritten things to be sent. Almost all are one line long. Now don’t get the impression that they are all bad phrases. Many people feel just as uncomfortable offering praise as they do criticism. So to help with that they have a praise section that has phrases like “…great presentation” or “you handled that situation very well”. Once you choose a phrase you type in the person’s name and their email and hit send. It is all very easy and not mean spirited. So if you are looking for a nice way to say something give this a try.
