Bastard Operator From Hell hits it on the head:
"When it boils down to it, you people are there to look after us - not vice versa. We're the real producers in the company! I mean sure, you have technical ability, but you can get that sort of thing anywhere - there's LOADS of technical people looking for jobs at the moment."
"Yes, there is a bit of a downturn, so I suppose we're lucky to be in work in the first place."
"You bet you are!" the marketing dweeb continues, digging the hole that much bigger, "Without us you'd be another geek on the streets. In fact, you should be thankful to us for making the work that keeps you in a job - instead of always telling us that we can't do things!"
"You mean like telling you that you can't just publish the address of some webpage and then get us to create it with zero days notice?"
It's so true. So true it hurts.
