New strategy I learned today:

Consistently be so vague in your communications and requests that you can always cover your ass by looking back and insisting your message meant whatever is convenient for you at the present time. This type of communication is really a difficult skill to master. If you attempt to change a meaning that is pretty much blatant, you will just come out looking like an ass who THINKS he is fooling everybody but really we are all rolling our eyes in disbelief and calling you a fuckwit behind your back (obviously I know no one who does this). You must plan ahead and plant communication loopholes for yourself. I’ll let you know how my skills develop and whether I am successful in this deliberate ambiguity approach…
