Free Advice For The Single People

If your significant other is talking about how they spent 4+ hours doing something in excel... DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT
1. Say "nothing should take 4 hours with excel!"
2. Start talking about how excel has these cool things called functions and how you can use functions to aggregate data in multiple worksheets...

more penalty points if they have been drinking and now you really cant talk your way out of it :-(

I don't know if you are married or not, but these are fundamentals of marriage, even on a non technical level. Just be proud that she took the time to spend on Excel and move on. Treat it as you would your CEO. Mentor, but do not teach. Assist, but do not do. Fix, but do not correct. This is only one of the many marriage commandments.

good advice you put though, wish someone had told me that years ago and I hadn't had to figure it out on my own.
