What we learn from this is simple, but we've already talked about it a million times before. If you feel like you're getting frozen out of the proceedings, chances are that you are. The hard part, the bad news, is that you also have to understand that this is your fault, and that it's your responsibility to demonstrate flexibility and solve THAT problem, instead of continuing to behave the way that got you iced in the first place.
