There’s Seldom Any Traffic on the High Road
Our instincts are to escalate when really, we should be focused on de-escalating the situation. One way to do that is to take the high road.

Say something along the lines of “I can see that.” You don’t have to apologize. You don’t have to agree with what the other person is saying. But I promise the results are magic. It’s hard to be angry with someone who agrees with you. And when there is no one to argue with and they’re the only person worked up about the situation, they will quickly feel uncomfortable and try to correct course.

Making enemies is expensive. Sometimes you don’t even realize how expensive. I saw one of those other nine passengers two and a half hours later, running to the gate to board the flight I was on. They had only just gotten through the hassle that resulted from their dealings with the gate agent—while I had grabbed a glass of wine and read a book. They had no idea how much their rudeness cost them in time and energy. It wasn’t visible to them. It was, however, visible to me.

mwouts/jupytext: Jupyter notebooks as Markdown documents, Julia, Python or R scripts
Jupytext is available from within Jupyter. You can work as usual on your notebook in Jupyter, and save and read it in the formats you choose. The text representations can be edited outside of Jupyter (see our demo below). When the notebook is refreshed in Jupyter, input cells are loaded from the script or Markdown document. Kernel variables are preserved. Outputs are not stored in such text documents, and are therefore lost when the notebook is refreshed. To avoid this, we recommend to pair the text notebook with a traditional .ipynb notebook (both files are saved and loaded together).
