We have a consultant working on one of our projects at work. When I was a consultant, I always thought that our clients were retards. Now that I'm on the client side, I tend to think that consultants are retards. Just can't win!
Anyway, during this meeting, we were discussing high-level delivery timelines with the consultant, and she mentioned that she had a January 1st go-live date in mind. I rolled my eyes. Typical consultant. They think that nobody has a life and they dream up these ridiculous go-live dates during statutory holidays. Hey lady, some of us have lives and actually don't work on stat holidays. Douche.
