Reasons not to stay in Consulting

Mrs. Ninja is also a consultant. Yesterday upon arrival at her hotel she received a fruit basket, a warm welcome from the staff who greeted her by first name, and the below card.

How depressing.

One of my case managers once got a bottle of wine delivered to her room on Valentine's day on a project I was on. The card read "Happy Valentine's Day", but the kicker was that the wine came set up with only one wine glass.

Hey, that’s nothing. One of our partners spends a fair amount of time in one city (not his home) and always stays at the sane hotel. Anyhow, he checks in one night and the guy on reception laughs nervously and says something like “good to meet you Mr …”. The partner is a little taken aback by the laughter with the greeting so asks what’s up. Turns out the guy on reception was a new recruit and was a bit phased as our partner is specifically mentioned as a top customer in their documented procedures.
