boss don has two things he says about some of my suggestions.
one is, you might just as well try to empty the ocean with a dixie cup.
i think that means my idea is an ineffective waste of time.
the other one is, you might just as well open a can of paint with a chainsaw.
i think that means my idea is overkill.
as for my suggestions that are in between ineffective and overkill, i guess they are good ones because those become his solutions somehow.
but i'm not complaining.
in fact i am grateful that he is so witty when he is disagreeable.
it makes the boss-subordinate relationship so special.
