B is for business
"it's nothing personal, it's just business". Which,in my humble opinion is just bullshit. Every time more then one person is involved it at some level becomes personal. It can't be avoided it's who we are. Just business would mean there would be no emotion shown on either side of the equation, which considering I've been on both sides of the conversation,just out and out is NOT true. Sure the way saying that awful phrase may have less emotional investment then the one receiving it but still there's ALWAYS a pang of emotion. Whether it's guilt for not being able to keep someone because of economic reasons, or hate that they misrepresented themselves or hurt the business in some other way. It is that emotion good or bad that makes it personal. It will always be there as long as there is a personal touch to the business. Until businesses are run by emotionless robots,overseeing emotionless robots it will never be just business. Now if you all will excuse me I have to go tell people where I've decided to work,instead of with them,but it really is nothing personal just business.
