re; 'some people don't like to be questioned'. In my mid twenties, while a designer at AeroJet, I had a Top Secret clearance to work with the Navy on the MK-46 torpedo. I learned about 'need to know', lots...and lived it ever since. If I have a need to know, I ask. If I am asked a question by someone who has a need to know, I answer...the truth. One good thing about being in this season of my life...no wife, no lovers and no big business needing lots of tax write offs........ a time when there were questions I didn't want to answer.
In the last 10 years, I hadn't had to side step a question or lie. I will answer any question about the last 10 years to date, with ease and 100% truthfully...this feeling has 'set me free'. lol
Therefore, when I ask a question (other than 'inside information'), where I do have a need to know, and someone won't answer it, they kinda already partially have....something stinks.imo
'Ask me no questions and I will tell you no lies' is the unwritten motto of these pos's CEO's...... I fear.
People in my life learned over the years, I am no fun to gossip with. It took time, but after they tried to interest me with something personal about someone and I told them 'I didn't need to know that' and changed the subject, they left me out of that loop....More people need to do that.
(yes I am bored...nobody wants to talk to me..lol)
