I know I am the kind of person that is oblivious to the finer niceties when dealing with people. Nevertheless in this case I did say that "in the current form," and then I gave suggestions on how to improve the work instead of just throwing the whole thing away. I also suggested to do certain changes and the work would be acceptable.
The next moment I get a litany of negativity from other person(s) involved.
Even after explaining, the negativity continues.
And explaining till my phone battery dies... and the litany continues.
Now I am SAD!
