Use a passive voice.
Avoid spelling errors.

Never use this form, it is never necessary. If you want something, ask for it.
Whenever delivering a negative message. It can be helpful because it presents the idea as a suggestion.
When avoiding giving information. If you don’t want to give a direct answer, try to confuse the client with questions.
Whenever you are unsure of the accuracy of your claim. Expressing doubt in this way fosters trust.
