Management

Today, I told my boss to choose between A and B, with A achieving his longterm goal, and B producing a quick win, but not leading to anywhere near A. He told me to come with a "hybrid" approach." FML

I can always tell when my boss is overwhelmed. He starts answering his emails without reading them fully first. So I'll ask "Do you want me to do A, or do you want me to do B?" and he responds simply, "Yes." I've learned to ask only direct questions to which "Yes" and "No" are appropriate answers.
