Flippant

Flippant

<flip-pant>

playful; rude; impudent;

having a disrespectful attitude.

The student was flippant and the teacher asked her to leave the classroom.

Remember:
flippant reminds of "flip ant".
we flip something by turning it around.
an ant is small.
we make someone feel small when we turn around their words.

At work:
You will get better customer service if you are not flippant. Be nice and pleasant.
