Re: Absolutely...

I have found sticking with my lifelong dual strategies of "let's all be honest" and "can't we all be nice?" usually seems to work surprisingly well.

That works for me too. If you've f**ked up and you go to your co-workers and say "I've f**ked up, can you help me out" they're more likely to be willing to help than if you shit on them at every turn.
