I DON'T KNOW

Just a lesson I'd learned..
.
When I entered my 1st company (my 1st job), on the 1st day the boss called me into his room and brief me some rules in the company. Until today I still really remember something very good that he had told me,
.
"Whatever people asked u, never answer people I DON'T KNOW because it will end there and things will never settle."
.
Since then I really take note on that and I've thinked more than twice everytime I didn't know about something but avoid to give people that answer. Of course don't simply give a wrong answer, don't say you know if you don't know, the best and safe answer is "I'll double check" or "I'll find out". Indirectly, it pushed us to know and find out more things which is good for us.
.
To be frank my readers, don't you feel unsatisfied and a bit annoying everytime people answer you they don't know?
.
Honestly yes I am.
.
Statistic saying that the most annoying answer in the world is "whatever..", and for me, I repeat for me personaly, I don't like people just simply answer "I don't know", unless it is a thing that he/she really has no idea.
.
Why I'm saying that way coz I'd met some people who are just lazy to find the real answer, lazy to co-operate and they just simply answer they don't know before try to find out the thing. Luckily I'm only someone who very small here. If I'm a boss, I'll definetly not allow my staff answer me 'I don't know' just like my x-boss do and yes, I'm not going to encourage my future kids use that word as an answer too.
