"Why do you need that $700 enterprise-grade AP? Just use the $69 linksys one like I do at home!"
Monday: "Support my new iGadget. Now." Tuesday: "We need encryption/security/firewall/2FA to meet PCI/CJIS/SOX requirements".
"Cost saving measure by centralizing printers!" By next month everyone who has the authority to ask for a personal printer again has one.
"Make an SSID without a password so that we can use our Chromecast."
