Need some good advice for your Monday? Scott Meyers’ BASIC INSTRUCTIONS might just be the kicker you need. I like Scott’s skewed way of looking at things. One way to take this is that the boss is the jerk. Another is to take the employee as a jerk. But my take this morning: we’re all jerks, so let’s do the best we can with that we’ve got (it’s in there metaphorically, between the lines, right?).

Happy Monday, y’all.
