Modern slang has defined the word "attitude" as being "obnoxious, in a bad mood or in a particularly foul frame of mind." It is common to hear someone say, "George has an attitude," meaning that George is a person with whom it is not easy to get along. This is similar to those who define "quality" as meaning "good." Neither definition is right.

In the world of real communications, a person can have a good attitude or a bad attitude, depending on another's perspective. Be careful to mean what you say and say what you mean . Be sure the words you use are grammatically correct. The winners in business in the years ahead will be easily understood and will definitely have a "good" attitude.
