Sit. vac.: Scapegoat

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I build factories. I was called on a project recently, and they told me "if it fails, you'll go to court and you won't get your money". They said, "we'll make a big scene and you'll take the rap, because we can't be seen to get it wrong. Don't worry, you will get your money, but officially you won't get your money, and we'll make a big scene". So I've been on two and the projects crashed and I didn't get my money. But two weeks later they called me in quietly and I got my money.
Overheard in Leaside Hotel Bar, Luton, December 6th.
