Is It Me?
I work for a local authority. We have been told there is no money in the budget to paint over a few black marks on the walls in one of our office building. Fair enough. However they mentioned that there was a large budget for construction work to improve the office. Therefore if we came up with a construction project we don’t actually need (knock a wall down etc) and it gets approved and carried out, it will cause enough mess to force them to put a fresh coat of paint up. Instead of laughing the idea out of court, my manager wants to have a meeting with everyone to discuss possible renovation ideas. I thought we were in a recession! I wouldn't mind but I can hardly see the marks on the walls myself. Has the World gone mad or is it me?
