Always Remember

Before I retired I was an Information Technology Manager. On one of my projects I was assigned to a team implementing a computer system that was being sold to our company by an outside vendor. I joined the project after we had signed all the contracts and were installing the new software. Part of my job was to work with the vendor's technical expert.

Parts of the system were not performing as we had been told they would by the vendor's sales person. The sales rep was long gone, and the vendor tech expert was being grilled about these discrepancies at one of our project review meetings when she uttered the following words to live by - here slightly paraphrased into haiku form.

Always remember --
marketing people always
say marketing things.
