Conversations with Stuff: Governments

Sigh…my day job can be arduous at times:

Government: Hey! We have a new system for invoicing!

Me: That’s great…but isn’t it us who designs our own invoices to send you—

Government: YOUR INVOICES CONFUSE US! DO IT OUR WAY!

Me: Okay…sure…what do I need to do!

Government: Fill out this form! And send us a timesheet!

Me: Seems easy enough. Here is the form. And the timesheet.

Government: WHERE’S YOUR APPROVAL E-MAIL?!

Me: You didn’t say anything about an approval e-mail…

Government: WE CAN’T LOOK AT IT WITHOUT AN APPROVAL E-MAIL! NO APPROVAL FOR YOU!

Me: Okay, fine! Here’s the approval e-mail.

Government: GAH! WHY ARE YOU SENDING EVERYTHING TO US SEPARATELY?!

Me: Because you keep asking for new things after I send the old ones!

Government: IT CONFUSES US SO! WAAAAAAAAAH!

Me: Sorry? Next time I…will send all the things at once? Now that I know?

Government: you had better.

Me: So when can we expect to get paid?

Government: Soon. With a 2% discount.

Me: Wait, what? You mean YOU get a 2% discount?

Government: yes, for paying early.

Me: Since when?

Government: Since we gave you new terms.

Me: wait, you’re our customer, don’t WE dictate the terms?

Government: WAAAAAAAH! NO APPROVAL FOR YOU!

Me: ….You guys are teenagers, aren’t you? You have to be to be this entitled.
