    Lightbulb Alternate phrase.

    Hi,
    What should I write instead of 'with due respect', in an application, in the first paragraph of body of letter,as a start?

    Re: Alternate phrase.

    do you mean 'an alternative phrase'?

    I would avoid writing 'with all due respect' or any other flattering phrases at the beginning of a letter. Perhaps at the end of the letter, or in case I need to tone down the effect of a some critical remark. Don't overdue the politeness!
