Student or Learner
My manager says.
"Raj, You might want to follow up with Teresa on this."
Is it is a polite way or a commanding way of asking me to do something.
Can't he simply say " Raj, Please follow-up with Teresa on this".
Can someone please explain.
Also, IMO, by using #1 the manager is suggesting that you follow up: there's a chance you'll learn something along the way (if you're more or less new to the company or Teresa is going to do something you are not used to, for example).
