Whether someone is scolding you or just notifying you of a mistake on your part, don’t take what they say and then simply offer an excuse why it happened. Most millennials I interact with use the phrase yeah, but. The yeah seems like they are in agreeance and understanding with you, however their but reveals otherwise. The problem with phrases such as this is that the person using the phrase never takes responsibility for mistakes and therefore can never grow and learn.
