Remember kids, if you're having problems and can't find a solution, you have a choice;
Hire a nice person that will take ten times as long, and thus, ten times the expense to beat around the bush and MAYBE get to the truth
Hire and asshole who doesn't give a shit about your feelings and will just tell it like it is for a fraction of the time and cost.
When you want to be lied to, hire an MBA.
When you want the truth, hire an asshole.
