I am going to hunt you down and give you a painful wedgie.
You called me this morning to ask if I could do a special thing for you – yes, it would take a little time, but I can. You did a happy dance and thanked me… then proceeded to tell me they would be sitting in the field waiting for me to send the data to you. Thanks for all the time you are giving me to do this. Tell me… what were you going to do if I couldn’t do it? You are awfully cocky to think I’m that good. I am, but that’s beside the point.
Then, you had the nerve to call back for two more!… oh, and needed within the hour.
Kissing up will get you nowhere.
