My colleague will indirectly ask me to do something by using a statement Eg. John needs a form = can you print me a form to fill out on behalf of John. Her tone of voice does not indicate it's a request but she stares waiting for me to do it. I need to put a name to this annoyance. Thanks!
Edit: I am ideally looking for a pejorative adjective as a name/definition.
Here is another example: "We've ran out of microbrushes in here" = Please can you get me some more microbrushes A small request but the statements are quite abrupt and used instead of a question.
Here is another non workplace example: Someone may say "This man has just collapsed" but everyone takes this statement as a direction to help the man Eg. "Please help this man he has collapsed"
(This is my first time using this app thank you for everyone's patience!)
