Here is an Evil Skippy Classic blast-from-the-past — first published on this day in 20111.
I supervise a busy department of 57 employees. When I gave one of my employees her performance evaluation last week, I told her that an area she needs to focus on is clarity of communications. She responded that she was surprised to hear that since I so often do not respond to her email. It turns out that she gets unsettled if I do not always answer all of her messages. Did I miss an important memo or something – am I supposed to respond to every single email message?
