When you quote a reasonably large IT quote, and they email you back asking for model numbers, what that means is they want you to use your expertise to put together a solution so they can then take all your hard work and punt it around.
That's a black mark against them, then.
stannard mastodon (AP)
a friend of mine in the oil industry told me he always put a deliberate error in the spec for precisely that reason.
This is precisely why I tend to leave model numbers out.

Aha! Now your reply makes more sense. I hadn't initially seen the comment from @tpheine so your response did come across as a bit odd.

I do agree, though, that if someone is determined to repeatedly blame you for something, they're best avoided. If that's possible, of course.

Thomas mastodon (AP)
You're totally right. To make it worse, people who blame you everywhere, so everyone is starting to believe you're to blame, AND you can't avoid them.

Welcome to my life
Meh, stand behind me, mate; I'll protect you. People LOVE to argue with me. So much so that they make it look like it's me causing trouble when, in fact, it is them! Take recent events, for example.

Now I could have continued arguing, which was pissing everyone off, or I could just block the twat. Notice how quiet things are? It just goes to prove my point. It's not me. It's them. ๐Ÿคฃ

As of 10 am this morning, I'm not supposed to drink tea or coffee for 24 hours.

Guess who is now craving a cup of tea?

@Sredni Vashtar tea overdose in the last days?
So I generally have two coffees in the morning before 8 am, a cup of tea around 9:30 am, another cup of tea at about 2 pm, and maybe another tea around 8 pm, so in theory, it shouldn't bother me not having a tea. Must be the thought of not being allowed for 24 hours?
(Undergoing a medical procedure tomorrow.)

Two coffees before 8:00am? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Either you get through your drinks incredibly fast, or you are up frighteningly early. I'm not sure I want to know which...
I'm an early riser. 4:30 - 5:00 am pretty much seven days a week.

Something like this happened to me last night at dinner. There seemed to be a hair in my baked sweet potato somehow. If you've seen me, then you know there's NO way it's mine. Of course, the food was so good that I didn't care. :flan_XD:
Well, it can't possibly be mine either.

I decided to log into my Coinbase account at the weekend, given I've been too depressed to look at it for the last couple of months. I wish I hadn't. :-(
