Typical travel discussion at DXC
Boss: I need to you to travel to customer site next week for an urgent meeting.
Me: OK, but can you approve my travel?
Boss: No, you need to submit a request for travel and justify your costs.
Me: But you want me to go, personally I don't want to travel
Boss: You have to follow the process or you need to explain to the customer why you can't make it.
Me: Ok - I have submitted the travel request, but it was rejected by your boss.
Boss: You need to contact them and explain why you need to travel
Repeat process for the next week until the customer makes a big fuss and eventually management relent and approves travel at the last minute forcing the company to pay more for the travel as only expensive tickets are available.
