Hi Mike,

Of course, thatâs why I said it was a flip response and unrealistic:-).

Of course, the discussion really shouldnât start with tools anyway. Tools are the last step on the road to creating a writing environment. But, we have to live with the working environment we are given, even if it isnât optimal:-).

If I were a manager and heard that kind of refusal from one of my staff, I would give the option of using the tool or being escorted out the door. The correct answer to being told to use a tool you don't like is "Yes, Boss." Feel free to make your case for changing the tool but ultimately, the decision is not yours.
