" Just Trust Me On This...."




While we folks on the East Coast await the latest "great" ice storm...


Truth can be a fragile sort of thing, especially when it's closely harnessed with trust - which are invariably a tightly woven pair.


"Seriously, I'm in Miami and ...."
Kinda' brings to mind the time my flight home from Florida was cancelled due to an extensive snowstorm threatening the East Coast.  Called the office to report that I wouldn't be at work the next day, because I was "snowed-in" in Miami. 

Y'know, you can really lose a lot of respect in a hurry with such calls, as word gets around the office.   Truth and trust are immediately put into play.  Character, leadership, honesty are all immediately called into question.    

After all, most employees don't want to work for someone...


... who appears to be inept at lying.

Mr. B, the airlines have a magical way to figure out that your flight in paradise was cancelled coz the incoming from NY was delayed due to weather. #softwaremanipulation

Not sure about that first comment...but at least it was a deliciously delicate and wryly inflicted wound!
