The "should pay more attention to details" and "ownership" comment is given to like 99% of people.

Bad. Super junior partner I barely ever worked for threw it in as a “sometimes doesn’t take ownership” type comment. Overall good review except that one comment. Fuck him.


Incredible. Lawyers suck so much.

I don't think any of those sound obsequious, and I'm grateful for the response that sounds polite and tells me all I need to know.

I do not like:

Sounds good
Sounds like a plan
Got it
On it

The first two sound like you're giving me your view on the task, as though you're only doing it because you approve of it. The latter two are just too abrupt and sound like you're annoyed to be asked.


This was a troll and a perfectly executed one at that. Thank you so much for this.
