What does he really mean when he says? (Part 1)

Here is a guide to What They Really Mean What They Say (Part 1):

When they say: Get it done whenever you get a chance.

They could mean: I really need it within the hour.

But they could also mean: I’m giving you nonsense busy-work since I can’t think of anything else for you to do.

But they really should have said: I’d like you to finish this task within the hour because I’d like to proofread it before I email it to my boss later today

And they didn’t say that because: They worry that you will think they’re too demanding and pushy if they are too direct.
