Comments: Work = Hell?

Somehow I expect you're not going to like this, but it's called lip service. Do it your way and let them think you've done it their way, if at all possible. Then make them look stupid.

Dude, I can run a tab if we hook up at Fritz's... seriously. I can easily change plans if shit like this is going on. Let me know.

Drink.

I agree with CTG. Been there, done that. Easier to give lip service, the make sure when the shit hits the fan, you have your act together and pull out the facts. It gives you a goal, and keeps you from ripping their throats out.

Unfortunately paying lip service means in this case means I have to do it their way. They'll notice I'm not the first day as soon as they look at work distribution and reports.

It's not the fact that their system is slow, antiquated, out-dated and labor intensive that bothers me. It's them telling me I don't know how to do my job when obviously the farking idiots are too stupid to realize that not only do they not know what they are talking about, but that they won't listen to reason and proof.

Nobody likes being shown up and that what your efficiency did to them. Since they can't attack you on your results they have to attack you on your method.
