Tell 'em like it is Captain Awkward!
Earlier today in a teleconference which I was thrown into with little idea what it was about, Captain Awkward is leading from the Japan side in a discussion with head office.
Captain Awkward: (uncharacteristically decisive) We absolutely need this data by the end of the month, otherwise we will not be able to do this!
Head Office person: (without a moments hestiation) That is frankly speaking completely impossible.
Captain Awkward: (looks confused and looks around the room trying to gather support) Uh... Ok... Can we maybe have it by the end of next month then maybe?
Cpt. Awkward is really a great guy, but don't take after him when it comes to negotiating!
