27. OK that's valid

I used to work in direct mail advertising once upon a time, many years ago. In fact I was a production manager and I handled outsourcing of printing and matched-mailing contracts to outside vendors.

I hear you, the vendors must show proof that they did their job correctly. and if they haven't done it right then MY job is on the line. However in these weird times of the pandemic I doubt very much that the vendor in Rochester allowed customers on their shop floor to oversee their projects. And I doubt that any production manager from Brooklyn (or somewhere in the NYC area) was able or willing to go to Rochester to oversee what should have been a routine matched-mailing program.

These companies do this type of work all the time, that's why they get awarded those contracts. This company Phoenix Technologies, I don't know anything about them, but they majorly fucked up. It has to be deliberate and politically motivated, that's all I can say. Maybe the night manager is a raving Chump lunatic, I don't know. There's going to be a huge liability issue and they are at fault.

Well ... are they just people who used to live in the residence? mr_lebowski Sep 2020 #1
