I hate office politics
I just wanna do my job. Contractors are taking potshots at me and a co-worker.

I know! Maybe I'll put forward a proposal to have all the contractor's jobs outsourced to India.

1. There you go.
That would make things awfully quiet in there.

3. They have their job, I have mine
my co-worker has his.

They're trying to make me and my co-worker look bad to cover up their own incompetence.

4. Why contractors when internal employees are hired to do the job?
I'll remember the India line the next time I come across one. :evilgrin:

Problem is, the internal employees then have to learn to do the work that the contractor does. Where I work, the contractors do the work that the internals are supposed to be paid for. :eyes:
