I'm struggling to find examples of something I swear I've heard being said before, and I just want to make sure I'm using the saying correctly and in the right context.
Say you're working on a project that involves using a specific software, which the boss knows is buggy or limiting. The boss talks to you about the end result and isn't happy, but he says this:
"It's not a knock against you, I'm sure you did the best under these circumstances."
Is that a correct way to use it? And if not, what should you say instead? Maybe I just misheard the saying if I'm using it wrong.
