Several years ago, when I was working as a book buyer, I set up some new store invoicing with the wrong date. The manager wanted me to date our invoices on a particular date, which was not the standard procedure. The customer was a huge customer and he had made a provision to invoice on a particular date. I followed the standard practice and he was very upset with me. I learned that sometimes, you cannot follow the standard practice and I learned to ask more questions and to pay more attention to nuances.
No, I have the ability to work out my differences with people and meet at a common ground.

No. I try to focus on the job given.
