In my country, if you want people to like you, you must learn to straddle controversial topics.

Mona: What do you think about our manager? I don't like him.

You: I haven't really given much thought to that matter. I'm so busy with my work. I would be interested in your opinion.

Mona: Well, I think blah blah blah ...

You (paying close attention to her words): That is very interesting. You have given me some ideas to think about. Well, I have to go now.

Mona: It's been really nice discussing this matter with you. I enjoyed exchanging opinions.

You: Me, too. Have a nice day!
