    Today at work its very rare it happens but our gaffer was 100% wrong:
    He asked me to pack up some fillet steaks that he had cut for one of our Hotels.
    When he come to write the invoice out he shouted up
    "Perky how many fillets have the moat had as youve altered it to 60 and that cant be right ive not cut that amount for them"
    I said
    "Wooley its 60 come and check it"
    So he come and said
    "It cant be 60 i would NOT send 15 to many"
    So i took them out of the tray and counted the number of packs 6 packs of 10 Fillet steaks = 60. :woo
    I smiled and he went:oops: :oops: .
    Now is there any time when you Boss as said something and they are 100% sure they are right only to find they are 100% Wrong:biggrin:

    With alarming regularity unfortunately. In my business that's what happens when the "less gifted" get promoted above the techies. The smart ones learn to trust the judgement of their tech teams.

    Sadly, where I work, if a manager is wrong, they will not admit it.
    Sometimes they even break the law but they won't admit it.
    One of them even made a very insulting comment to me about my hearing impairment :mad: , did I get an apology? You must be joking!
