Re: Keep walking

I was piloting some Oracle data warehousing products many years ago, Oracle supplied a contract 'consultant' who came in, insuted my DBA, refused to engage with my sysops team leader and spent explained to me that the entire approach to the pilot was wrong.

Nobody was allowed to treat my team members badly so I picked up the phone and called my Oracle account manager who dismissed her lack of interpersonal skills as she was such a technical guru.

When I pointed out that she had also stated that we were wasting our time with Oracle Products and should be using Tera data for the pilot he closed the call. Hearing her mobile ring and seeing the look on her face as she was fired was a magical moment. I still had to take the DBA and team lead to the pub for lunch to make up for it though
