Rewarding Competence

Before his death, my father, an engineer's engineer who worked his entire adult life for IBM, was sent to England for 16 months as quality control on a project.

One day, in frustration after yet another round of clashes, he queried his boss,"Why did you pick me for this project?" intimating that it was NOT a favor to him to allow him to travel around the world at their expense.

"You know how to tell people to go to Hell and make them like it."
