or the Movie from which the quote came from,

Office Space

The IT guys at the firm were fairly inept and well you get the quote.

Not that our S@H guys are inept. Infact they seem to be pretty on the ball dealing with the systems they are forced to use

Yeah, I'm sure all the complaining on the Forums had a lot to do with the change in status. If it wasn't for all the obnoxious, narrow minded, self serving, infantile whining posts, this problem could have gone unnoticed for weeks or even months.

I did that once. Actually playing football when I was stationed in Okinawa. Got run out of bounds into the elephant grass we were using for markers. Found a car someone had run in there and abandoned. Got it out and it still ran.

Once upon a time there was a product called Windows 3.1 which didn't connect to the internet as its manufacturer decided "was only for geeks, beside we cant make any money from it so lets invent MSN and charge em $10/yr to subscribe via VT100 terminal".
