Re: Beer...

It's not uncommon for workers at the coalface to complain about how "overpaid" those higher up the food chain are for how little they do. However, when push comes to shove they do earn it.

I can think of a few projects that I've been on when, on the face of it, the project manager well above my pay grade pushed some paper around, did a few reports...all the usual PM sort of stuff. But when something went wrong, he was the one who had to sit in a meeting (where tea and biscuits were certainly not offered) and explain to the customer why we were running late because of some technical snafu.
