Mensagem:  Claro que não can be said politely or not so politely. Some people say "No way!" The polite way is "Of course not." "Are you going to pay me for cleaning up the mess?" "Of course not, you made the mess so you have to clean it up. We can't have employees leaving stuff around that might be dangerous to other workers." "Oh, I understand....if I make a mess it's my responsibility to clean it up." "Why sure (or Sure is). But think of it this way: if you don't make a mess in the first place then you won't loose any time having to clean up later."
