Cheesy Fun for a Friday

YouTube is one of my favourite places on the web because of all the fabulous gems you can find. Here’s a little video from 1951 I came across awhile back that absolutely cracked me up. “How to say no, and still keep your friends!” I think about the problems being posed here and I wish my life had been that simple growing up.

I especially like poor Marty who looks like he’s going to have a nervous breakdown.

On watching it again, I have to say, there’s actually some useful material there, insofar as communication skills are concerned, although if I were to actually present myself like this I’d probably be mocked mercilessly.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I’m a professor of project management at the college where I work. My students continually amaze me with their insights, passion and all-around awesomeness. I figure they deserve access to more answers than I can give them by myself. This site is for them.
