Uplifting Moment #129

an uplifting momentIt really makes you feel good inside when you attend a company meeting (one for briefing employees on the performance of the company over the last year and looking forward to next year) and you are basically told:
The bad news is, we didn't meet our projected revenues and we lost money on the year. But the good news is that we didn't lose as much as we did the year before!
Furthermore, it's great to hear the projections of how well the company is going to do in the coming year, increasing revenues by over 25%, gaining new customers and turning a profit, and then hear the general manager qualify it with the phrase "if we can pull it off."

I imagine this kind of experience would take on quite a different light if one were, say... closing a deal with a much larger, well-established company to work for them for nearly 10% more salary. Not that I would know anything about that.

Hypothetically, you know.

"...if we can pull it off."

You have to love disclaimers like that. So subtle, so clever, so...open-ended.
