How to "save" money
A friend of mine who worked as a contractor in Europe was contemplating changing jobs. The company had had a bad year and were looking to cut expenses (and surplus fat).
The VP flew in on the corporate jet to tell them this news - the use of the corporate jet upset every one. The "surplus fat" included lowly paid people who did all of the useful little tasks, like tour the printers every day and check the toner and paper supplies, and "space planners" who organised office and site moves.
He said the last straw was having to organise his own office move, including several servers, all needing Ethernet connectivity (and so sockets to plug the cables in).
The day before his move he went to his new "office" and found the Ethernet sockets were not all wired in, and there was not enough power sockets to plug all the kit in.
He got back to his old office, and found someone had moved in!
(The VP did not just fly in to visit them - this visit was "squeezed in" to save another trip)
