“He’s the guy you want in the foxhole with you.” That statement has long served as an assurance that an individual was loyal and dependable, even under severe pressure. A similar statement is, “He’s the kind of guy you’d want to have a beer with.” This guy is personable. “She the kind of girl you take home to meet Mom.” This girl is a keeper. A few years ago, I described an individual as someone I would like to see running my family’s business. That person would have brains, common sense, good judgment, and integrity.
That’s my kind of guy. But I’m not sure I want to have a beer with him.
