Liam Kavanaugh has been upgrading Windows 2003 servers at his company, with "help" from The Consultant. "He turns up in a car far more expensive than any that the actual IT department can afford. You show him your setup and he looks confused. Any deviation from a lab environment and he can't cope. Eventually you end up doing all his work for them while he warns you that installing the software on a virtual server/physical server, a Windows/Linux server, one with no wallpaper/one with pretty wallpaper IS NOT STANDARD and he can't be held accountable."
"Eventually, you get a £2,000 bill, and the managing director sends our a message thanking the 'consulting team' for doing a good job."
