Saying “Go away” is to force and threat somebody to leave without any possibilities to stay for a longer time.


Go away is not a polite phrase to ask somebody leave. One situation is that somebody breaks into other people’s space, or doing something that is not good. The behaviors hurt the owners or the elders. People may say Go Away in extremely rude way. Another situation is that some people are arrogant and assertive because of the faults and misbehaviors. People shouted at them and let them go away.


In Chinese culture, people adhere to traditional values. As a result, they educated their children behave politely at any time and situations. In addition, Chinese people believe that create a harmonious environment is beneficial for them to teach next generation and spread Chinese culture. They wish to welcome all guests and not willing to say Go Away to others. In Western culture, people are more concerned about the private privacy, if somebody offend them, they may say go away.

There is no denying that Go Away is a very rude and impolite phrase. As well-educated teenagers, we had better communicate with others by saying decent and polite words. To deal with difficult situations, another strategic way should be suggested. Go Away is not a diplomatic word to negotiate with somebody. It will cause misunderstanding and resentful emotions, even revengeful behavior.


Some good alternatives are:
1. Would you mind leaving for a while?
2. How about we continue to do it next time?
3. Let’s stop here. Contact me by email.
4. We had better consider it again. 
Hope we can cooperate in the future.
5. We could not come to an agreement.
How about we have a meeting another day.
6. I have a meeting in 15 minutes.


I believe that helping others will benefit yourself as well. Communicating with polite words will give you a broader stage.
