Boss: Every one of my employees is underperforming. What should I do? Catbert: You should fire yourself because you're the only common variable. Boss: I hadn't considered that. Catbert: That's how I know I'm right.
Alice: I need a decision, but it involves more than one variable and I know you can't handle that.
I'll give you an hour to dither before I badger you into making the correct decision.
The Boss: I'm going to dither for two hours just to show her who is in charge."
