Margin mugs: A bank paid how much for a 2m Ethernet cable? WTF!

Um, IT people. let's not prolong the "stupid client" mockery too far. If a "bank" or other multinational corporation is running a business that depends on that Ethernet cable, or some other hardware, how much money do you think they want to lose? In my case, such a client may be making $1 million per day. They pay me $1,000 for a morning's work, so if I have to jump on my bike and cycle to the local computer store, that's maybe a 400 quid cable. Better than a $900,000 loss, don't you think ..... ?
