one of my favorite tactics is to write a memo to my
recalcitrant client/boss summarizing my understanding
of our agreement. I then close the note asking them
to initial it and return it to me signifying that they
agree with my understanding. If they won't initial
it, (and I may have to buttonhole them in their office
to get it) I ask for more detail on where I
misunderstood them, all the while being as sweetly
reasonable as I can be.

it mostly works. mostly. <g>
