Eight words you never want to hear on a conference call: “Oh, that’s fine. We’ve still got another hour.”



Please tell me you did not just videoconference someone who sits 30 feet away.

"Looping you in" is email code for "it’s too late to do anything, but if this goes bad I plan to share the blame".

Judging by her fast-walk to the printer, it’s pretty obvious the account supervisor is working on her resume.
