This wasn't directed at me, but I have a hard time thinking of a situation where this is a productive response. It may be true, but sheesh, it doesn't exactly make for a friendly work environment. Thankfully we're all working from home, and I don't have to feel the palpable tension that comment would have caused if we were all still sitting in the same space.


@mike I have absolutely no problem imaging cases where that assertion is matter-of-fact accurate, more than appropriate, or even generous. 🤷
