Brandolini’s Law

Thanks to twitter friend @SerialMom, I recently learned of the existence of Brandolini’s law:


Damn, I wish I thought of that!

Sometimes, in the case of interacting with peers and colleagues, it may indeed be worth expending 100 units of your energy to flush 10 units of bullshit down the terlit. However, with management, don’t even think about refuting 1 unit of managerial-generated BS with 2 units of your intellectual energy – unless you want to get bitch-slapped down. Attempting to refute 100 units of management BS with 1000 units of your personal energy is downright suicidal.
