Just relating a story that some of you may find useful.

Every Tuesday, me and a few other systems people, play cards in the
breakroom during lunch.  There was a laptop and numerous papers on one
table, like it was someone's desk.  This was from a member of a team of
people we've had working for sometime on converting our phone system.

Conversation:
A:  What are those people doing here?
B:  Relieving us of surplus cash. :-)
C:  Like we need that, with the wage freeze and all.
A:  No, really what are they doing?
B:  They are from the company helping us with our phone system conversion.
C:  Sure doesn't inspire a lot of trust in the system when you have to
have a team like them to keep it running for as long as they've been here.
B:  Reminds me of the time we had two IBMers on site for a year to get
some software working.  400 based, supposed to track all of our PC
software.  Went 1/3rd of a million over budget on consulting fees and IBM
dropped the software.
D:  Shut up and deal.


I did appreciate the doughnuts they brought in.  And after I mentioned
that Krispy Kreme when to an iSeries, guess where they got their doughnuts
the next day?
