  6. Important letters that contain no errors will develop errors in the mail.
  7. He who hesitates is probably right.
  8. You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk.
  9. People who go to conferences are the ones who shouldn't.
  10. No matter how much you do, you never do enough.
  11. The last person that was fired will be held responsible for everything that goes wrong.
