Nope, No Better

     In fact, I feel worse, though at least not physically.  Yesterday, I found out my department head apparently and without telling anyone threw out our one (1) end-of-year test equipment request, a portable high-definition videoscope that my immediate supervisor and I had put considerable work into finding the best price/performance and then leaned hard on multiple vendors to push the quoted price down. Oh, joy.

     Always good to know your leaders trust your ability to select and make good use of the proper tools.  Or so I hear.

The Peter Principle in action...

Sorry Bobbi, this may be a good time for coffee and chocolates, and curling up with a good book and multiple cats.
