I’m rather peeved. I’ve had a few days to calm down, and I’m still somewhat irritated.
Whenever a committee is set up to decide on an upcoming project, that committee needs to be empowered. It is beyond stupidity to set up a committee and have the person running the committee say, “I like it. But I need to run it by my boss.”
In that case, what is the point of the committee? There is none! If all the decisions are made up by the boss, then why waste the time of everyone in the committee if the committee can’t make the final decision in the first place? Aaargh!
