Bench Shyster

Given the well-known shakedown tactics of the Minions the bench shyster is either bought or an idiot. The Minions' tactics would make a mafioso blush for their brazenness and general jackassery. So I would believe the charges are probably true; the Minions squeezed many customers with a deal to make some numbers look better than they actually are. What the bench shyster fails to grasp is not that the net revenue is off but the Minions want to look like a stronger cloud player than they really are. Since the Minions are a distant laggard anything the juices their cloud numbers will help their stock price and market perception which is the basis of the suit.
