we're type A (who, us?); we use words like 'synergy' and 'leverage' in sentences; we know that "Decks" aren't made of wood; we drink wine, not beer; we wear boxers, not briefs; we actually like to travel; we're platinum elite with every airline and hotel; we stay at the W (aka 'the Dubbb') whenever possible; American Express drives us nuts; we know where the best bars are in every airport in the world; we know how to calculate NPV; we can sleep anywhere, anytime; we're all about the per diem; we're all places all the time; we're crazy consultants.
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."
That is great!!
