I have a very quick question. I can't understand whether I should us the definite article with the verb "process" or not.
Context 1: I'm at work and I'm talking to my colleague about what he is doing (processing reports / support tickets). He'll go on holiday soon.
What is the difference between these two sentences? Which is the more correct?
A: Take a break and have fun! I'm sure there will be a lot of time to process reports when you come back.
B: Take a break and have fun! I'm sure there will be a lot of time to process the reports when you come back.
I'm not referring to a particular report but only to all the tons of reports we process in our office, so I would omit the definite article. Do you agree with my choice?
Context 2: I'm at work and I want to reproach a colleague, whose job is to process reports / support tickets. I want to refer to all the reports he that he process in his job, so they are not all the reports everywhere in the world, but I'm not referring only to a specific report.
1) You are making too many mistakes! Please, be very careful when you process the reports! 2) You are making too many mistakes! Please, be very careful when you process reports!
