in reply to PerlMonks @ PerlCon 4.0?

I don't know if I'll be able to make it. I have to convince my boss not only to give me the time off, but to pay for it! That should make for an interesting conversation. :-)

Your Humble Servant,

    If you find any winning lines to use on the recalcitrant boss-types, please share your wisdom with us!

    So far, I've had no luck with these:

    • You know, the Perl Conference is coming up...
    • <monotone and bored> I'm sure the Dale Carnegie course is interesting. </monotone and bored>
      <peppy and excited> Do you think Randal Schwartz will be at YAPC? </peppy and excited>
    • Ongoing training is important, don't you think?
    • (And lately)Pleeeeeeaase?

    Russ :-)

      Yes, I'll be at YAPC too, if that's important to you. And so far, I'm "go" for being on the Perl Whirl 2000, a place where I'll get to experience NO NET CONNECTION for a total of 8 days.
        Hoping to entice him to come along, as well, of course...
