Outstanding starts at seven
My car’s manufacturer sent me a survey after I paid them a visit to service my vehicle. The service was good, they did what I’ve asked for. End of story. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing bad either. Now take a look at this part of the survey:
Well, the service was good. It was not outstanding though. Does six mean Good now? Digits also depreciate over time?
-Evaluate your skills in Java programming on the scale of 1 to 10.
-Wow, your Java knowledge must be outstanding! Unfortunately, you’re overqualified for our job opening.
Have you ever watched the CBS’s series “How I met your mother”? Remember the phrase “I sleep with sixes?” Did he sleep with almost outstanding women?
I’m not going to finish this survey until the vendor of my car will fix this.
