Hidden costs of hellish schemes for claiming expenses — FT.com:
“So what is the answer? I know someone who works in a big organisation who got so fed up with helping out a team mate with his expenses that she slapped a 10 per cent commission on him. Not only did he not object, but word spread throughout the company, and soon everyone was asking her for the same deal.
This is a brilliant idea for any entrepreneurial person with inhuman levels of patience and low blood pressure. Do your colleagues’ expenses for them, and charge 10 — or even 20 — per cent. You would make a fortune. And you would secure for yourself a place in heaven.”
Genius indeed.Only a pity that often “entrepreneurial person” AND “inhuman levels of patience and low blood pressure” do not mix that often.
