Yay for students!

Thank goodness that we have the ability to influence students like this.

I had to deal with a PR director the other day who kept saying, "I'm just being honest with you - this will be a challenge."

I asked her, "Okay, so what do we need to do?" (My definition of challenge - which I think is fairly accurate - is something that will take lots of effort but is achievable.)

She replied, "I'm just being honest. This will be a challenge."

I looked at her, confused. "Okay," I said. "So whom should we speak with about it?"

"I'm the person that would decide this," she said.

"So will you do it?"

"No," she said, "I'm just being honest with you. It would be a real challenge."

I stared at her incredulously thinking she's either a total idiot or lying to me.

Or maybe both.

Grownups are weird.
