I'm having an interesting e-mail exchange...
Superior says, "I'm not happy with X".... with the not so subtle implication that X is at least partially my fault.
I send one e-mail in reply with a couple of reasons X may have happened -- and suggesting that X was the choice of the person involved, just like Y was my choice.
Then -- I look on-line to see if X actually IS the case ---
and it isn't. This isn't a case of interpretation -- it is a case of a quick mouse-click and a small amount of counting to see if it is or is not the case..... and it isn't.
Who wants to bet that Superior won't really accept that X isn't the case?
