Options should include. . . . "Hmmm, perhaps I am wrong" and just move along. Take this and learn from it.
I was counseling a younger engineer one day. The poor guy was terrified I was going to fire him for a mistake he had made.
I sat him down and explained that while our education levels are almost identical, I have the ability to draw on years of experience.
Then I told him this. . . .
"And what is experience, but learning from screw-ups. I have screwed up more than any one of you, and have learned from it. Take what happened and learn from it."
Should probably tell my girlfriend and 16 year old daughter lol..
Still nothing resembling a counterpoint I see...
