Dewey is working out some questions and such to talk turkey with some folks. Granted, I haven't had to do that kind of thing for a while. For a long while. For a really long while, if you're talking jobs and so forth.
Here's my idea...like I said, I am a bit rusty of proper job speak etiquette...
my thoughts are we're busy,
these folks are busy,
let's just cut to the nitty gritty.
They know what they are willing to offer, we know what we are willing to accept so let's just get the details out in the open and save all the soft soap chit chat.
Apparently that isn't the way polite society goes. Huh. Who knew. Well, I have been out of mainline life for a while. Technically, the last paying job I had was a good 14 years ago, give or take. And it wasn't really one full of negotiations for pay and such. LOL...I didn't even play that game when I was hiring and firing folks.
What can I say? I'm pretty much a cut-n-dried sort of person in the nooks and crannies of my life. I just don't have time for all that theatrical banter that no one is really interested in.
Seriously, though....is it really considered undelicate and brash to just shake hands and cut tot he brass tacks? If there's not a meeting of minds on what they want to offer and what we want to accept, it would save everyone time and effort to just lay it all out from the git go....
