@Jury1of1 Damb I find MacGuffin as annoying as the next person. But at least have something worthwhile to criticise her with. Maybe thenedman who submitted it might not have linked the two together. And receptionists learn about their companies and she's right you want access to a company often they check how people treated all their staff and not just ones you think are important. Secretaries, receptionists and PA`s are the secret oracles of companies and know all that goes on...

@Jury1of1: They advise never to argue with idiots since they'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience, so I won`t. It`s enlightening to know you have such a low opinion of receptionists, though. FWIW, when deciding whether or not to take on a consultancy contract in a particular organisation I always take note of how they treat the `little people` like receptionists and security guards. It saves me from wasting any pearls of wisdom on gobshytes like you. People are always nice to me since I`ve got something of value to offer them, but by observing how they act with those people they don`t care about impressing I get to see their true personalities and save myself the trouble of accepting offers from people that will only be trouble in the long run. It`s like the insincere guy who`s nice to you on a first date but rude to the waiter: always a jerk to avoid having a second date with.

@MacGuffin Good thing you mentioned you're working in the game industry, because really, no one else would have ever pieced together the ploy of flashy promo`s not equaling quality games. Also, how does working as a receptionist give you this oracle-esque insight into the gaming industry and its associated mysteries?
