Hiding in the plants

Out of the loop

I love it when people keep me out of the loop.

The company I work for recently invested a large amount of money into a service dispatch system that has so far proven to be rather buggy.

Worse, only now am I finding out that to make full use of this software, we're going to have to run our own web server. Thanks for letting me know in advance so I could put it in the freaking BUDGET!

I guess I can make our 5 year old copy of Symantec Anti-Virus last another year. :P
