124. Don't piss off spies
There's a lesson in this--

When you piss off your employees-- and your employees happen to be world-class SPIES-- you should keep in mind that they can probably fix your little wagon when they catch you (or your indignant spokesperson) in a lie.

"He hasn't even been to the Watergate in decades." uh huh... Hotels always have surveillance cameras.
