Consultant Ninja said...

Reminds me of a recent project dealing with some CSC guys.

Us: "Tell us what it's going to cost to extend our client's IT contract for the next 5 years."
CSC: "Well it depends on what you need."
Us: "We're not the IT guys, you tell us what we need and what it will cost."
CSC: "Well we can't tell you what you need. Thus, we can't tell what it will cost."
Us: "Then what are we supposed to do? We don't know what we need."
CSC: "If you want to pay us $100K, we will give you a cost estimate and details on what you need about 3 months from now."
Us: "See ya, we're bidding it out."
