Re: Legal Matter
You know if it wasn't for HR, working on Big Data projects would be fun.

Why don't you do what I always do... Show up with a box of doughnuts and a box of Coffee?
Works like a charm. Just don't get the ones with sprinkles on them. Bob doesn't like them.

Also tell them that is an overseas assignment so that they don't try and hit you up with OSHA concerns which only affect us in the states.

And if this is a rush job. Upscale the pastries.  (But you didn't hear this from me. )  ;-)


PS. And who said that our Ninjas could only throw code exceptions?

Should you reply to this message, please estimate additional copy and reply fees and forward them along, as we already have a sizable bill outstanding (aforementioned copy and reply fees as well as two days back-retainer for a total of $6,000 US) and billing is hounding me for collection. Please don't make us use ninjas.
