What of it? ?
I have no idea
Ask me another !
I wish I knew !
I dont care
It doesnt matter
It's all the same to me
It's up to you
It's beside the point
Use your own judgement

It's a lie
It doesn't make sense
It's new to me
Enough of it

Not now.
Look! Squirrel! (This was the best NO suggestion I received from a commentor on
my earlier post. I can't wait to use it.)
My word of the year is REST, so I cant fit another thing in.
Nope.
No thanks, I wont be able to make it.
Not this time.
Heck no.
No way, Jose. (Since my husband is named Jose, this is a favorite in our house.)
Regrettably, I'm not able to.
It's that time of the year when I must say no.
It's a Wednesday. I have a "No on Wednesday" policy.
Ask me in a year.
I know someone that might be a fit for that. I'll email you their information.
You're so kind to think of me, but I can't.
Maybe another time.
Sounds great, but I cant commit.
Rats! Wouldve loved to.
Im slammed.
Perhaps next season when things clear up.
Im at the end of my rope right now so have to take a raincheck.
If only it worked.
Ill need to bow out.
Im going to have to exert my NO muscle on this one.
Im taking some time.
Thanks for thinking of me, but I cant.
Im in a season of NO.
Im not the girl for you on this one.
Im learning to limit my commitments.
Im not taking on new things.
Another time might work.
It doesnt sound like the right fit.

I'm RESTing right now.


Im not sure Im the best for it.
No thank you, but it sounds lovely.
It sounds like youre looking for something Im not able to give right now.
I believe I wouldnt fit the bill, sorry.
Its not a good idea for me.
Not now.
Im trying to cut back.
I wont be able to help.
If only I had a clone!
Im not able to set aside the time needed.
I wont be able to dedicate the time I need to it.
Im head-down right now on a project, so wont be able to.
I wish there were two of me!
Im honored, but cant.
NoNoNoNoNoNo.
Im booked into something else.
Im not able to make that time.
Thanks, but no thanks.
Im not able to make it this week/month/year.
Bye now.
Ive got too much on my plate right now.
Im not taking on anything else right now.
Bandwidth is low, so I wont be able to make it work.
I wish I could make it work.
Not possible.
I wish I were able to.
If only I could!
Id love to but cant.
Darn! Not able to fit it in.
Nah.
No thanks, I have another commitment.
Unfortunately, its not a good time.
Sadly I have something else.
Unfortunately not.
I have something else. Sorry.
Apologies, but I cant make it.
Thank you so much for asking. Can you keep me on your list for next year?
Im flattered you considered me, but unfortunately Ill have to pass this time.
And my favorite, Oh I wish I could help but you know, I bet Claire could help you
with that.
Thank you for thinking of me. Unfortunately its just not a match.
No, sorry, thats not really my thing
Can I get back to you on that?

Ew.
No, Id rather you didnt, but thanks anyway
I can't make it work.
It just won't fit right now.
I'm really buckling down on my priorities right now, so I can't.
No say I.
What's the compensation?
How much are you able/willing to pay
Ick.
Are you able to better that offer?
Sorry, no can do.
I only say yes to very select opportunities, and unfortunately this doesn't meet my
criteria.
The demands would be too much for me.
It's not feasible for me to take this on.
I wish I had all the time in the world.
My body double can.
In another life.
I cry, but decline.
My advisors won't agree to it.
My body says yes, but my heart says No.
I'm not the person you're looking for.
I don't have an iota of bandwidth left in my brain.
If only.
N to the O.
NO.

Well anyway
. .
Anyway - , ...See More
1. filler words (smart), or the word-parasites (simply).
Well and anyway could get into the Guinness Book of world records as the most
frequently used words in your speech. Their Russian counterpart is "well" and
"anyway". Anyway-such a little word that characterizes exactly the image for
residents of the United States. So if you want to put dust in the eyes of its Englishspeaking interlocutors, then screw anyway in their proposals.
2. Introductory words, giving time to think over a smart idea
Until you give birth the idea, you can win a couple of seconds, using introductory
words. They create the illusion of your excellent knowledge of the language.
In short, in a word,//in brief in short

In other words in other words
On the contrary vice versa
The thing is the point
3. the greeting and farewell.
Hi, hello, bye or good-bye is the legitimate leaders by frequency of use. Where did
without them.
But to slightly increase your speech, you can use some variation of:
How are you today (how things work)
bye bye (bye for now)
see you later (see you later)

see you soon (see you soon)


till next time (until next time)
good luck (good luck)
see ya (Chao, svidims)
farewell (adieu! vysokoparnoe Word)
take care (take care)
talk to you later (talk to you later)
until we meet again (before new appointment)
I'll be back (I shall return and why not)
4. options for agreement or disagreement and abstentions
The word, which are broken down even the most convincing arguments Really?
Russian analog of the richer should be: "Che, the truth is that? Oh well! ".
In addition, a win-win option, you can speak and more delicately:
Maybe (maybe)
Yes, sure (Yes, of course)
You are right (you're right)
It can hardly be so (unlikely)
Very well (very well)
Most likely (very likely)
Most unlikely (unlikely though)
Not a bit! No such thing (Nothing)

I doubt it (doubt)

No way (no way)

public transport. I want to please!
