You are correct sir.
You are correct sir.
I'll be sure to throw you a couple of bucks when you get sick and lose everything and become homeless. Just make sure you have a witty cardboard sign. I like those.
He can't be a positive role model to black kids because he's not black*. He can't be a role model to disabled kids because he's not disabled*. He's doing what he can to help in one specific usecase. His efforts should be appreciated by everybody.
*I acknowledge you shouldn't be excluded from being a role model if you don't share the same skin colour or able-bodiness. But if you share those attributes I presume it creates a closer connection.
You're referencing a character who first appeared on the Simpsons in the 90s... before SAP software as a class even existed.
What? ERP systems have been around since the 70s... SAP released R/2 in '79. If you're talking about R/3 (when they introduced server-client architecture), it was released in 1992.
Today, you usually know who's calling before you answer. It may be appropriate to take a call if it's more important than the meeting. If you're in sales, a call from a major customer is probably more important than a meeting.
Sure, but not in the meeting. Excuse yourself, and explain it's an extremely important customer call that absolutely cannot wait.
And even if this is the case, you're still being rude... just with an excuse. The call may be more important to you, but the other people in the meeting? You're wasting their time.
If you've blocked out time for a meeting, don't take calls during that time. It's rude and unprofessional.
Note: This is for orgs that have effective meetings. If your meetings are generally unproductive, it may be a different story...
How did they do this? I have a toddler and want to prepare him for this kind of stuff. Any insight would be appreciated. When I was a kid, I was never bullied, nor a bully. I saw it going on, but didn't do anything to stop it.
Sure they are, but that doesn't stop 90% of people from filing on time, or at least filing for the automatic extension. For that matter, nearly every church in the country manages to do the same.
Actually, churches are an exception. Churches that have been granted 501(c)3 status as a church under 170(b)(1)(A)(i) are not required to file information returns with the IRS. They get special treatment.
Taking a two-decade-old trend is not cherry-picking.
It can be cherrypicking when there are cyclical trends whose period is longer than 20 years.
