But if someone comes to you and tells you that something is giving him problems and asks you nicely for help, you'll react very differently.


Of course, and I agree, that's not being PC. What is, in my opinion, is the advice to instead couch the desired change in terms of "this will be better for the company." Any competent manager will know that if making a reasonable change improves the employee's productivity, then that obviously is better for the company. For the employee though to have to go through this convolution in their request is the "PC" part that I object to.
