I received a distressing note this morning from a very smart businessman, a board member for an important technology company. This is what he said:
Yesterday I received an email from our new Controller at the office. She is 35+ with an accounting degree. Her email was "Can me and you get together when you come in Tuesday to discuss yata yata yata".
Such ignorant language from a professional person is, in my book, totally unacceptable. If this person's language skills weren't evident in the hiring process, I would dismiss the person summarily.
