ON THE BACK BURNER

March 29

The author of the latest book that I am reading, "Works Well with Others",helps me out by including as his last chapter , " Rules I Never Got To". Such as,"Unless you are European, do not kiss anyone on the check. Especially twice." I can add, no hand kissing. Here's one I need to remember." Ending a statement with the phrase " and stuff" nullifies the statement's impact and substance. OK. I'll work on this. "No winking". I'm OK with this one,too . I don't wink, I frown and wrinkle my forehead. " If you don't feel nervous, it's not worth doing. ". I feel nervous every time I go to a meeting. .You would understand this if you attended the same meetings that I do. The author concludes with his "Key Measures and Equivalents ". I think they should be made mention of: 2 seconds of eye contact equals 1 smile. 1 wink equals creepy 40 seconds of small talk equals weather and it's Friday. And to end ,120 seconds of small talk equals a stuck elevator. I didn't actually learn anything, but I found it amusing and stuff.
