The software manager says: “I can’t do anything about this – it’s a hardware problem.”

The marketing manager says: “Hey, 75% of it is working – let’s ship it!”
For Small Business Owners:

The young man said, “In the neighborhood of $100,000 a year with a great benefits package. “
The interviewer said, “Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks’ vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years – say, a red Corvette? “
The young man up straight and said, “Wow! Are you kidding? “
The interviewer replied, “Yes. But you started it.”
