Our customer has fun passing blame.
Us dumb subcontractors sit quietly in the corner and don’t speak unless spoken to.
I have fun hiding behind the monitor while running the slides so no one can see my reactions to things.

Me: (pause) “Shit.” The entire table [thankfully, all TBE people] laugh uproariously.
