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?
