Dissed By Someone “Important”

The impeccably credentialed and self-revered Ian Mitroff dissed me out of the blue via a private message on LinkedIn:

“You are an absolute relativist which is not very interesting or relevant.”

Based on the following quote, Mr. Mitroff might label Shakespeare as an uninteresting, absolute relativist too:

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. – William Shakespeare

Damn it Willie, nothing is relative! It’s not good or bad, it’s one or the other. Since my judgment is infallible, it’s whichever I say it is.

Feeling compelled to reply to the self-anointed “father of crisis management“, my bruised and battered ego retorted with:

“I’m sorry, oh exalted professor. Thanks for your irrelevant opinion.”

Me thinks that Ian may be one of those professors that Ken Robinson says: “solely uses his body to transport his head around“. I hate to prematurely judge people, but it sure feels good to be bad.

“A conscience is what feels bad when everything else feels so good.” – Steven Wright

    You’re either a nihilist or a postmodernist or both.

    Fancy labels. I’ll be whatever you’d like me to be P-Touch. Need a fantasy girl?
