Thanks M&M... would have had no clue how to approach this without you. Worse, I probably would have let HR "take care" of it. (HR forced my hand... people went straight to HR to complain. Wimps. That includes the VP complaining to HR) Can you imagine how much bigger a deal it would seem to an individual contributor to be called in to HR on such an issue?
I spoke to my DR right before lunch, on the theory that if he wanted to, he could go home during lunch to address the issue. I would hate to hear about something like that right AFTER lunch and be self-conscious the rest of the afternoon.
I took the script from the show notes and copied it out onto a yellow pad so it wouldn't look like I was reading some script I got off the Internet. :oops: (cause I am not that good that I could memorize it)
