Chris, Francais and you do not share the same value system. It is not
that you are older, or wiser.. or even tired due to old age. It is simply
that you have a different value system than he does. Your value system
has evolved because of a combination of external stimuli, and genetics.
My personal opinion on both your and his value system will not enter here,
because my response is not tuned to who is right or wrong in this case.
Francais believes that the companies that a company or person supports is
a more important issue than almost any other factor when employing a
company or a person to do work for him.
You do not place this determining factor as highly as he does. You place
other things above this. Trying to claim (as you do above) that the
differences between his values and yours are due to the "ravages of
midlife" and that his value system will conform to yours once the "ravages
of midlife" occur to him, is quite improper, and rude.
Anyhow.. just keep in mind that people do have different value systems.
