comment One word for “to take advantage of company resources (that one works for) for one's personal intents”?
@TylerJamesYoung My point was that in whatever way we describe this activity, it still comes into the general category of theft.

comment When moving one's head to answer a question does “nod” mean yes and “shake” mean no?
I always thought that the shake means no because it is the movement of a child's head when the child does not want to be fed.

comment Is there a word for this behaviour?
You say you are "very sensitive about how others/anyone feels." Yet vulgar language is liable to upset people's feelings. Are you perhaps - confused or conflicted?

comment If the plural of ‘man’ is ‘men,’ shouldn’t the plural of ‘German’ be ‘Germen’?
Remarkable. Out of all the words ending in –man at litscape.com/word_tools/ends_with.php it seems that only German and I suggest, caiman, shaman, and talisman don’t form a plural –men.

comment The “only…but” problem
The use of "only" (trying to help) implies that there was some outcome other than help.
