A number of months ago the business paid an external company to do something because they listened to the salesman and not us who knew what we were talking about.

We had to modify some of our processes to manipulate data and move some files around for this new thing to then do its stuff.

I remember sitting in the original meeting when the salesman said what they could do and thinking to myself I don't understand how that will work.

After they bought it and we had more meetings I kept saying it wouldn't work. It just makes no sense to me. It's not quite 7 red lines, but still made no sense.

I was told to do my thing and this other company would do the rest.

I kept insisting it wouldn't work, until it got to the point where I just started to say each and every time "I don't care anymore. I've tried to warn you, when it doesn't work I'm going to wear a crown".



Tomorrow I get to wear a crown to work for the day.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
