There’s always that one guy in the office who has to correct you.
You know the one; you order the veggie salad and he chimes in with “you know, technically tomatoes are a fruit, so technically you’re having a veggie and fruit salad.”
Everyone enjoys being right, and I know I have my little things that I’m a stickler about (I’m looking at you, apostrophe in “it’s”).
But most of the time in business, being mostly correct is just fine with me.

Did you point out the issue with the chart to the besserwisser at your work?! 😉
You’ve absolutely hit the nail on the head with the cartoon!!!
That’s great, Mark.
Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: I’d rather be vaguely right than precisely wrong.
