When, long ago, you and some of your friends were pretending to be the Beatles, how did you handle it when there were more than four of you?
On my block, we realized that being the Fab Five was simply ridiculous. So it fell to me to fire a member of our group. He did not take it well, and I still don't blame him.
Wish I could remember exactly how I handled it.
