A Raincheck “No”

A “raincheck no”, says a clear no to the current request but does respond with a positive offer:-

I can’t work your shift tomorrow as I’m doing something; however I can help out later in the week if thats any help?”

The bottom line is, though, to only make an offer if you genuinely want to. Don’t add a “raincheck no” to ease your guilt – stick to the reasoned no we’ve looked at before.
