Fellow sr consultants from Deloitte, how does the path from consultant to sr consultant look like?
A ship engine failed but no one could fix it, so they brought in a very experienced man. He inspected the engine very carefully. After looking things over, the guy pulled out a hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine burst back into life.
The owner was given a bill for $1,000,000.
The invoice said:
Tapping with a hammer: $5
Knowing where to tap: $999,995
In response, the owner murdered the man with a hammer.
Moral: Hammers rule.
