    Have you ever sat in a meeting like this?

    ... And wanted to punch someone for being so fucking stupid?

    The stupid guy in the room was the so-called "expert". It took him seven and a half minutes to work out he could do it. Thick twat.

    Who am I supposed to punch. I'm usually the expert. I guess if i had no morals i would just say yes , yes and yes sell anything and them get the project manager to explain why we didn't give them what they want.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.

    Do what exactly? I'm so thick I still don't know what they actually wanted.

    I actually sat in a meeting once where the customer wanted time and attendance recording on site buses because he was worried employees would skive off work by riding around in a big circle all day.

    And I had to keep a straight face.

    Only the price put the kibosh on the dumb fuck.

    Riding around in circles all day, that would be the bus drivers.

    I thought of you as the Project manager, cheering up to all those silly ideas by the client, a bit like you do with new MS Windows releases with their Security Updates
