  1. I don’t really agree. My manger criticized me in a meeting a while back. I snapped at him and made everyone in the entire room very uncomfortable. In the end I trash talked him to coworkers and everything. If he wanted to find out how much he could get away with, now he knows. The criticism was kind of unprofessional. There is a difference between saying: “I think that’s wrong” and “you did everything wrong, why didn’t you do it right?”.

    A big rule for me is: don’t pretend to like anyone if you don’t like them. Guys will put you through all kinds of games to prove that you are fake. Like “if you reeaally liked me you’d put up with all this bad behavior”.

    You can ask me not to be negative, but don’t ask me to be positive. That’s like asking me to get all stupid and emotional for no reason.

    Smiling can be construed as flirting.

    Other than that, good list.
