Ha all too often for me it's "Hi"... Silence for 60 min and then a "thanks!"

Someone on my team used to do that, just saying something to make it sound like he knows. But most of the time he just repeats what others have already talked about...

I’m working with a certain (global and super well known) consulting firm on a deal and it’s the second or third time they’re proposing structures that wouldn’t work/would not be legal/give an opinion on whether something is legal or not. Should I address this with my partner? Shut them down? I’d guess they know what they are doing more than me, but it feels invasive.

Accenture profile screener shouted 'Support???!' as if i stole someone's life support upon knowing i currently work in an Infrastructure support and maintenance project. Hung up the call so fast, Not expecting a call back
