The Fine Art of Diplomacy

I confess that I often prove socialy maladroit, but yet, I am not entirely without diplomatic skill -- however, those skills were most finely honed whilst I portrayed a Renaissance nobleman in a tabletop role-playing game.

This means, alas, that sometimes, the most tactful and reasonable response I can muster is to demand that the offending party be horsewhipped, or to petition for my satisfaction with rapiers at dawn.

Unfortunately, such options are frowned upon in the white-collar office culture of the 21st century.
