Y'know, I give my boss a lot of grief, but today he actually is in a tight spot and I sympathise. He basically has to take the heat for somebody else's screwup now (or more accurately, three or four different people's series of screwups) and that's never a fun position to be in.
So, in order to make his life easier, I hereby resolve to be less snarky to him today. 'cause that's the generous kind of guy I am. ;)
