Today, I met separately with the President and Chairman of the company regarding a product that I'm designing. Each ordered me to do the opposite of whatever the other instructed. FML

41 - Holy crap, that's the first time I've seen a relevant, coherent, thoughtful reply in the first comment thread that may actually be useful to the OP.
I tip my hat to you, good sir (or madam).

The chairman of a company usually is simply the greatest shareholder of the company, and proceeds to enhance the company based on public interests. He also is the Senior member in the Board of Directors. The President however, has the power to fire you, and authority to create a structured work plan for the employees. Unless the Chairman was the CEO of the company, I would say that you go with the President, just so that you don't get fired.

^ Someone will explain what went so wrong with your comment in a moment. In the mean time I'll be busy getting my lawn chair and popcorn ready, and enjoy watching the culture shock and thumbs down you're about to receive.

105- Are you saying that grammar Nazis shouldn't use numbers? Just because someone puts priority over proper grammar doesn't mean they can't use shortcuts to make things easier.

109 - How very arbitrary of you. Formal tone ( Which you gnat-zees seem to worship ) forbids the use of numeric characters in anything but page numbers. So how is "taking a shortcut" by putting numeric characters any different than dropping all vowels or ridiculous phonetic-type short forms ? As is often said by great minds: " the message is more important than the medium ". Hypocrisy at it's finest. Find a new way to feed your ego because you are awful at this one.

115- Taking a shortcut by using a numeral is different from dropping all vowels in the sense that the sentence will still make sense afterwards. Also, I am not doing this to feed my ego. I do this to alert others of their mistakes.

You're screwed unless you can get both of them in the same room for a definitive decision. I say don't stop hounding them until this issue is resolved cause having either one of them as a work enemy can make your life hell.
