Good Lord! We are a touchy lot! Thick skins? Obviously not. Toma1980 - word of advice from a pompous whatever I was called. As you go up the ladder (no doubt adding to the woes of the people below you) you will be given access to information that is called 'confidential'. This means that you won't be able to fully explain the reasons for your decisions to the ancient plebs whom you now tower over. As you get higher, and your vista gets wider, you will begin to cringe as you realise that the Oldgits might well have been put in position because they are able to tolerate, manage and develop people like yourself who are so full of beans they make tigger look positively torpid. At some stage, because of the necessity to keep confidential things confidential, you might even begin to understand some of the constraints that oldgits in positions of authority have to operate under. And then you may well look back at at those outbursts at attitudes...just as those above you are sighing and those who have been there are sniggering. You better report this quick before anyone sees it.
