I realize that you have been in the industry for longer than I have been alive. And that you have worked with countless people in my position. I have one thing to ask. And I'm not really asking.
Don't tell me how to do my job.The bosses are pleased with the job I have been doing thus far. And sometimes I have to make choices based on the situation at hand that go around the proceedure that I myself have dictated. Deal with it.
