Excuses to Never Use

warning!

When I ask you a question, and I don’t realize that you are in the middle of something because you’re hiding your head behind a huge-ass 28″ widescreen monitor – don’t tell me:

I can’t answer your question right now because I’m, like, totally invested in this project right now and I can’t wrap my head around anything else at this particular moment. If you want to talk to me, like, in an hour, I should be able to clear some of my bandwidth to address what you were going to ask me.

It makes you sound like a total bitch. Just say,

Sorry – in the middle of something – catch up with me in a bit?

If you do the latter – I won’t make fun of you on my website.
