So last week writer Danielle Rene asked her followers on Twitter to share their "favorite phrase to use in a professional clap back" and the responses got real pettty, real quick.

What is your favorite phrase to use in a professional clap back? Mine is "per my last email..."

Here we have the professional way to say, "Ummm can you fucking not?"

@DeeRene_ "Going forward, I would prefer that you..."

For when you want your coworkers to know you're definitely keeping receipts.

@DeeRene_ "In an effort to maintain clarity/transparency..."

And when you've been waiting a week for a project that should have taken a day.

@crumr018 @ceceliagrace @ameliareads @lindsayinMPLS @sjacobs @MalMitch1079 @DeeRene_ I LOVE an "Any updates on this?"

There's even a scale for how to end your emails depending on your mood.

@clifftothemound @CoolGreyDreams @DeeRene_ @TheMaroonV My scale: "Kind regards" = default "Regards" = I'm pissed o… https://t.co/MPJv4ytPL9

Oh, and if you were wondering if your professor is over your shit? They are.

And the pettiest phrase to end all work emails with in the future.

@DeeRene_ lmao nothing is more passive-aggressive than "PLEASE ADVISE...."
