You can’t overestimate the value of low standards.
Oh how I laughed when I read Saturday’s Dilbert Blog. Scott is discussing his experiences getting his car serviced. I have sympathy, especially as, not being a motor engineer myself, I too always feel I’m getting shafted when I take my car in for a service.
My favourite quote from the post which you can read in full here is:
It’s been my best car yet, thanks to my low standards. My only complaint is that the navigation unit is stuck on "shout." It’s normally a soothing female voice. But when that voice is stuck in banshee mode, you don’t know if you should turn left or divorce it and give it your house. I’ll be happy if they can just dial it back to "nagging harpy" mode.
