    It was the best I could come up with at such an early point in the day.

    I swore off MLB when the Barves moved and have stuck to it, so no I don’t read that thread.
    I have literal baby cardinals growing up in my backyard right now.
    But I think I see what you did there.

    I am still a Braves fan but I absolutely despise their move to the suburbs. I completely understand how you feel. The Mets drove me away circa 1989ish because of terrible behavior. Jerry Jones drove me away from the Cowboys.

    I figured it was a safe bet no one would fight me on this.

    And I am NOT French!

    Pick a fight when no threat is expected? Classic French!

    Wouldn’t be the first time. Well versed in pardoning others’ profanities!

    Issue management is important, but what if the issue is unimportant?

    You will all be happy to know that we hired absolutely none of the people I wanted to hire in our 3 open spots. Oh, and my former colleagues are in full revolt over my job description. I thought this would go poorly and it has drastically exceeded my poor expectations. These guys always deliver!

    That really sounds not fun. Good luck!

    It is really strange. Basically every decision is 4-1 and they have a tendency to win every discussion based on sheer numbers. And I am left to say things like "ideological purity is dangerous" and "we have a tendency to hire people from a particular background". And ummmm...it's not that well received. I keep wondering if the CEO and sales manager are going to decide it is just easier to stifle me than to rein them in. Despite conversations where they agree with me.

    Ugh, that stinks. My current employer is that way, less so now than in the past. I was hired into a group of 12, I was the lone external hire. I lost a lot of battles but am still here 9 years later.
