Advice from a Stranger

The VP of a midwest publisher was putting together a free-standing bookcase during set up at a trade show. He had turned the bookcase upside down and was tightening the shelf screws. Noticing me, he explained his technique. Pointing out how gravity was in his favor, he said, "It's better to screw down than to screw up."

I liked him immediately.

Yeah, Kelly,
And it happened just like I said it did.
