|Good Sign for my future employment, or Bad?

Sigh. I really need to get a grip. My colleague was very patiently explaining to our Toilet and Facial Tissue Company who's name has become the word for those things you blow your nose on Representative how upset we are that they keep springing nasty surprises on us, usually right AFTER we've signed some kind of agreement. |
And I got bored. Because, really, the exact history really didn't matter. And they were engaged in a "well, who's fault is it" debate, which really, really twists my panties. And not in a good way. It's always an utter waste of time. And then they moved on to the "we really want to have a better relationship...but it wasn't my fault, it was"...and building bridges and forging....meaningless dribble.
So I said "Look, Kevin, here's our point. You want us to have a better relationship, fine. I'm all for it. Here's how you start. We would just like to go a couple of months without you guys delivering some kind of bitch-slapping to us in the form of a price hike or product shrink we can't do anything about. Okay?"
I should wear a nametag that says "Raised in a barn, trained in the grocery industry, pardon my language."
