I would find another 5-10 people and put in the picture, just to see their reaction.

Ain't saying it doesn't keep out the problems.

It just doesn't do anything to fix them either (and probably contributes to making them worse).

I haven't responded yet. Tempted to just tell them to stuff it. Or maybe I'll take the picture without me in it, out of spite

Just have them Photoshop out half of the person on each end.

There are some people I know who have moved into jobs where they act as the public face of their organization. I've noticed that this has changed the way they communicate even in non-professional settings. Specifically, they always talk like they are pitching something and they use lots of talking points and cliches. That's a very awkward dynamic to introduce into a non-business, friend relationship. I wonder if they realize they're doing it?

Not my job to fix macro-level problems and few people would agree with the bulk of my solutions. However, it is my job to take care of me and mine and I do it in an honest and direct way vs. feeling good about the "diversity" in my area...but not wanting too much diversity, mind you. Just enough to be good people.

YOu mean like using "leverage" as a verb? "I'm going to leverage my new jacket to impress that hottie over there."

I kind of the agree with the 5 over 6 guy. I mean objects always look better grouped in odd numbers. You should hire somebody else and put 7 in the photo.

Just wait for someone to call in sick and get the picture done that day.

but then that would be non-confrontational... which is something that members of this forum just don't do.

So I called the guy to give him shit and he said the reason is that the more people, the farther out he has to zoom so you can't see the people too well. I see his point if we're talking about more than 20, but come on, is 6 people really excessive.

So he could tell I was getting pissed and made an "exception" for me but this was the most ridiculous conversation I've had all month. At least he didn't tell me to pick the person with the lowest performance rating and exclude that one

It's still early in the month. I'm sure you'll have a more mind-numbingly stupid conversation in the next 25 days.

Not sure what it'll do for you now. If you understand how to take the test you will be fine. Where are you looking at applying?

When people get the day right but not the date.

Is there a study on how many dollars are wasted annually on worthless conference calls? I'm thinking in the billions.
