Attorneys vs. Accountants; Miscellaneous Stuff; Bloggers and Lurkers....
Dear Big Boss.....
If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times, you CANNOT open an Excel spreadsheet in Word and then expect to make changes to it!
I realize that you are a "lawyer" and not an "accountant" but I would think after about the third or fourth time (in a month) of me telling you this - it would begin to sink in. I mean, you passed "the Bar" and all, so you should have some sense about you.....right?!
My next step? Putting a HUGE post it note on your monitor that says "If it's from Accounting - open in Excel."
Dear School Athletic Director:
I realize that we must play other teams within our "conference/division level" (what THAT means, I have no idea), but are you seriously telling me that the only teams in our "conference/division level" within the state are located (at a minimum) at least an hour away?! Somehow, I seriously doubt it.
Sincerely (as I gear up for a round-trip FOUR hour drive to and from next week's game)
Dear Fellow Bloggers:
Use YOUR voice, please. I beg you!
Don't try to use someone else's voice. It doesn't work. It comes across that you are trying too hard and that you aren't being sincere.
Sure, the person you may be trying to emulate is insanely popular (seriously; are we in high school here?), but it doesn't translate if it's not YOU.
As our mothers always told us; be YOURSELF and you will be loved for who you are.
Me (who would much rather hear YOUR voice)
I see you!
Yes, I do!
I don't usually call you out (because sometimes, I've been known to lurk too). But come on out. Say what you have to say - agree or disagree (just be nice about it) and you will be welcomed into the group.
