No..Longer..Able to Think...For Self...

Twice this week I've gone into Caribou coffee and ordered a "grande."

I've got myself a snazzy room downstairs full of temps working through ten zillion boxes of paper like wonderful little helper monkeys. This morning after I checked on their progress, I left with a magnifcant turn and said grandly, "Carry on!" With as many snags as we have in this project, it's only a matter of time before I demand that they "Make it work."

I did the same thing one time in a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in L.A., and they nearly threw me out. Oh, how I do miss the Coffee Bean.

Sneak up on them and tell them to stop talking too much. Repeatedly. And cover up all the windows with tin foil. You'll get better work out of them if they are in the depths of dispair.

I hope you are encouraging them to think outside the box as well.

Good point, G. Beyond looking for as many as four specific words or names in all those documents, they *should* think outside the box. They should look at the writing *on* the box for clues as to what the case is actually about...

Did you know that Caribou Coffee is required by its primary shareholder to follow Shari'a law? That's why you never see porn or bacon on sale there.
