THERE’S A SNITCH IN EVERY GROUP CHAT
The assumption of privacy can make you forget how exposed you really are.
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and a group chat is always vulnerable to
the biggest gossip on the thread.
Russian Translation: полагающийся на себя, самостоятельный, самодостаточный
Definition: able to do things for oneself and not depend on other people
Example: He was not very talkative, he was elegant without exaggeration, and at the same time bold and self-reliant, as none of us were. — Он был не слишком разговорчив, без преувеличения элегантен, и в то же время дерзок и самонадеян, как ни один из нас.
Synonyms: independent, self-sufficient, on one's own, self-assured
Instead of always saying "yes", "sure", "certainly", "of course" you can use other phrases to show your agreement with other people. Here are some of them.
1. I'm with you on that one. - Я согласен с Вами в этом.
2. I couldn't agree more. - Полностью согласен.
3. Yes, absolutely. - Да, конечно.
4. I'd go along with that. - Я бы согласился с этим.
5. You've got a point there. - В этом Вы правы.
6. I couldn't have put it better myself. - Я бы сам не смог сказать лучше.
7. Great minds think alike. - Великие умы мыслят одинаково.
