|Next career goal: the NCUA?|
|Sure I'm calm...!|
|Gave them very|
It has never concerned me too much when a person doesn't understand something; because, at heart, life is about learning new things from new experiences... and hopefully, we all do so everyday! "Not knowing" is not where problems generally arise. Problems most frequently arise from folks - "specialist" types - who are dead-certain in their "wisdom", confirmed in their understanding - the "know it all", the self-assured fool, who lacks the gene for listening.
Our "argument / discussion" centered around the value of statistical averages, regression analyses, Monte Carlo stimulations (sp?) - "the basic" modeling sort of stuff. If asked, I might have confessed that I wasn't (within several standard deviations!) always real sure what all that "stuff" really meant. But of course, they were more interested in reveling in their own "intelligence" than in exposing my "ignirance" .... guess you know the type.
|"Just press 2 & 4..."|
Anyway, we parted on less than amicable terms - much less to be exact. As the elevator door was closing, wanting to make sure they knew "where to go"; I told them that the parking deck entrance was located on the third floor; and that, if they would press button two and button four that "on average" they would get there.
I haven't really bothered to check on them since. Do you think I should....?
