Working for other people can be difficult -- especially when those people are working for other people. These days I've been doing a lot of contract work, some of it for a company that does contract work. I enjoy most of what I do, but sometimes clients can be difficult, especially when they're the livelyhood of a large group of co-workers.

We should really turn down one of our current contracts. It's going to be close to impossible to succeed on the contract, as the customer has found a pattern of changing direction (and forcing their contracts to comply). The problem is that we *can't* say no, or a bunch of people don't work. Unfortunately, I think that I'm going to have to say no myself, as I don't believe in working under those conditions, where failure is likely, and being part of playing the bitch. Not my cup of tea.

So it's back to the drawing board, again.
