Hey, wazzup? Is this how you would greet your boss at work? Probably not. More professionally, you might say: “Hello. It’s nice to see you today.”

Come up with professional translations for informal jargon (that you might be tempted to use). Choose five of the following to translate into professional speak.

  • OMG the project is due soon. I’m low-key freaken’ out.

  • You forgot to send the invite. That sounds like a you problem…

  • In my POV, I think we need more time.

  • My new bestie in the next cube is going to help me…

  • I was ghosted by the guy in the marketing department.

  • I totally forgot about the deadline.

  • You're micromanaging me and I don’t like it.

  • Amirite about the meeting topic for next week?

  • WYA? I thought we were meeting now!

  • Your desk decorations are fire
