I never have liked hearing the following words, "Snap it up" or "make it snappy. "It was a crude thing you could say to someone. Although I don’t remember if I have ever spoken these words. I know that I am defiantly guilty of thinking of those phrases. It could be demeaning to someone, and it was most likely is said in anger.
Joe lost his patience with Bill, but is it necessary for people to speak in that fashion? Proverbs 15:1 says, "A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger."
Maybe Joe could have said, "hey Bill I need to get home soon." That is an example of a soft word. The good thing about it does not stir up anger.
It was probably a long day and Joe was tired. When were tired and frustrated we need to bite our tongue and speak with a soft word.
