Must -- Control -- Fist of Death --!

There's one little record in the database that's not correct; all they have to do is correct it and their page will work.

Them: "Do we need to fix this?"

Me: "Yes."

Them: "How do we fix this?"

Me: "You have a desktop application the DB team built for you."

Them: "Did this fix it?"

Me: "That fixed -one- of the things wrong with it."

Them: "Can't you just alter the website so we don't -need- to fix it?"

Me: "..."

Honestly, WTF.

"Okay. You're right - we won't fix it at all. The webpage will stay broken. Of course, then we'll lose lots and lots of money. And probably half of your people will get laid off because of the money problems the company faces. You don't think the higher up are going to lay off themselves, do you? But that's fine, just fine. It's worth screwing up the company's future just so you don't have to put in a couple minutes of work. Shoot, your coworkers don't really need to send their kids to college. And doesn't everybody have 3 mortgages today, just to pay for food?

You are absolutely right in this. I don't know what I was thinking, suggesting that the data be fixed instead of just ignoring the problem. I can see why you went to business school."

But it's at 19% APR, you didn't even negotiate with them.
