itinerary, and my reactions to faint praise...

well, I'm leaving for Lansing on sunday evening, returning on Friday morning.

it was an interesting challenge for me today, having had my work criticized. I'm clipping the rest- issues of consent, and all, if you have problems with that...
I managed to have a client call another customer of ours who is likely paying much more for our services, convince them (prolly in violation of their secrecy agreement) to send a copy to them of one of their documents produced by us, but by a different analyst. They criticized me for not including as many functions as the other document.

first of all, I could care less about their opinion. I believe this customer intends to screw us to the best of their ability, and placing myself in the position of being able to narrate the reaming I am about to take provides me with a certain glee. It's like, through careful setup of the players and the scenes, I can do a whole humiliation scene completely under my control and yet directed almost entirely at myself. Can you top yourself? Is it a 'scene', if the people involved haven't consented?

to what degree is consent important? I'm not doing a 'scene'- I'm doing my job, living my life, but being in control, manipulating. I'm not discussing what is illegal or unethical- I believe I'm well within those bounds. But safe or consensual?

I hate being on the edge, knowing this much. He who increases knowledge increases suffering.
