That was myself, Lord Sugar

If you follow our Twitter account (@TheWriter), you might have spotted a little rant we had last night about people misusing reflexive pronouns.

Candidates were flinging ‘yourself’ and ‘myself’ around willy-nilly, where a normal person would’ve just said ‘you’ or ‘me’. It might seem small, but there’s a behemoth of a problem behind it. In business, it seems people feel they have to make everything more complicated than it really is. Even pronouns.

People in power, on the other hand, don’t. Have a listen to Alan, Nick and Karren next week. They’re usually the only ones making any sense.
