How many points did he ask you for?

Yes. Over the line. But without context, who knows if I would have done the same. But it's never professionally appropriate to tell someone to F off.

Thanks guys. Confession: this was actually a rage and frustration fueled fantasy and never happened. But good to know I shouldn't do it!

Looking for your opinions! I am currently interviewing to get out of public. I have a very nice, helpful senior manager asking if I will be able to help him out with a project in Q1 2022. Of course I will respond to the email saying I’m happy to help, but I want to give him a heads up via call or ping that I might not be at the firm at that time anymore, so idk if you want to bank that time on me. Should I do this since the communication would be via company software?
