Greeting my fellow miscreants. Only have time for a quick update.
As many of you know I work in the tech field, today though I get to be a sales guy. No I didn’t suffer any traumatic head injury or other debilitating mental injury. they want me to do this because of my lack of skills.
I am not a specialist tech, I am a general, meaning I know a lot about a lot, but don’t specialize in any single discipline. I am also known to have a mouth on me, even if I am smart enough to let it loose.
Today I will be pitching the largest project my company has ever done, this single project is bigger than all projects we did last year. The problem is the client is difficult, so they are sending me in with instructions to not filter my mouth, call it like it is and be as rude/funny/annoying as I can.
One of three things will end up happening:
1) I will sell the project because of my brutal honesty.
2) The client will fire my company because of my brutal honesty or
3) I will fire the client after being brutally honest with them.
It’s a long story but this client either has to do this or we need to not be their vendor.
I’ll have my job come Monday no matter what result so this should be interesting.
I’ll update everyone when I know how it goes, till then enjoy
