"Does not suffer fools gladly" was a phrase I thought acceptable until, after being bullied at work I did some research before presenting my case. This phrase was used as a typical example of a bully!
I was surprised at this, as I had used it frequently in a 'freindly' manner. Reading your statement it still seems innocent to me. Read in another manner it implies you are a bully, which I am sure was not the intention of the Author.
I used to have certificates signed by the Captain after every trip on a ship concerning my abilities. One section was Sobriety. The stock reply to this was "to my entire satisfaction". Then quite a few Captains saw the world through the bottom of a Gin Bottle!
