Imagine you're raising a child. The child is well-meaning but ill-mannered despite much coaching.

While visiting a friend your child is offered soup, to which they reply "yes please", then "thank you". They then pick up their spoon and SLUUUUURP.

Do you:
A. Slap the spoon out of their mouth and tell them they are being rude
B. Praise them for the steps they've taken, and make a mental note that there's more work to be done

What do you think the effect of choice A might be in the future?

@jer_ if your boss is a rude child, it's all the more important that you have a union so you're not at the mercy of their childish whims. 😉

@jer_ Choice A results in a planet-eating singularity, every time.
