Re: GIGO

I've had to adopt this very attitude to survive emotionally in my current role.

It was born from what a recruiter (who was sponsoring a user group meeting) said informally to me (about counseling his frustrated staff) on the dysfunctional hiring process in local government:

"its the only reason a pariah like me can stay in business"

This was circa 2002 and has stuck with me all this time. Pure gold.
