That`s not my take on it.
We`ll have to agree to disagree.
Let`s agree to disagree.
I can`t go along with you on that. To me hiding the truth from someone is the same as lying to them.
I can`t agree with you. Reducing office space saves money, but it limits our capacity to do buisness. It`s not a long-term solution.
That`s not how I see it.Accepting your limitations is a sign of maturity, not weakness.
