Cross the Line
There’s a code of conduct during a business meeting but sometimes that goes out of the window. One Internet user explained how they freaked out because the situation escalated. This was unprofessional but they couldn’t help themselves as it heated up.
A Redditor wrote: “During a bargaining session a few years ago, one of the principals and I in my district got personal, really fast. I’m usually pretty calm, but the look on my VP’s face that day after the meeting told me I’d probably crossed a couple of lines.”
