  • Is anyone genuinely surprised? I am sort of comparing this to how most project managers seem to work in our office here. It's the "postpone, have a meeting, reconvene at a later date" game from what I can see.

    It is just such a damned shame that all the time this carries on, there is oil spewing out into the ocean.
