Quote of the Week

by john on March 26, 2003

A little light with the posting this week – I’ve been in Chicago on business and going to be in New Orleans for fun over the weekend so I won’t be connected much.

I’ll leave you with the quote for the day from a meeting today, regarding certain unusually demanding users:

If they came in through the wrong door they would want the building turned around.

I’ll leave it at that. 🙂

And if you did it, they’d complain you turned it clockwise.

Clients can be even worse, because they (rightfully) have a sense of entitlement, having paid and all.

What industry are you in, incidentally?

I work in the IT department of a 1300 employee software company. I probably should write up an “About Me” section one of these days…

Yeah, I figured you were in software; that kind of user sounded familiar. 🙂

(Though, in all fairness, it’s probably applicable across many industries.)
