They thought cable guaranteed them an income without them having to provide any additional value, or even any value.

They are slowly - very slowly - beginning to get a dim idea that that might no longer be the case.

I do not feel sorry for them. I will continue to boycott them no matter how much they may pretend to change.

The solution versus problem is a fine balancing act. I've had supervisors who simply didn't want to know about problems before they were solved, which was gross dereliction of duty, especially given that she was the only person with the authority to take some of the steps needed. Raising a problem without going through a trouble-shooting checklist is negligently creating unnecessary work for others. The trick is recognizing the point where additional resources, and which ones, are needed, and that's not as easy as people make it sound.
