    Default Army Colonel fired for Criticizing Powerpoint

    I know how the pencil pushers in the government love powerpoint. Hate it myself. This colonel in Afghanistan got the boot for being overly critical and not going thru "official channels" which can get you in trouble in a gov't job.

    I audit a few government contractors, and their love of fucking Powerpoint presentations in mind-boggling.

    Their ability to focus on the fly on the elephant's tail while not seeing the elephant in the room is also a great ability, probably what they do best.

    Me: "You have a contract expiring in two months that is 40% of your annual income and nothing new in the pipeline, this is a major concern!"

    Them: "Don't worry about it, but did you see our new business cards? We have a new logo, the CEO, the CTO, the CFO, the Director of Contracts, the Director of Business Development and our CBW (Chief Bottle Washer) spent six months working on these, THIS will drive new business!"

    Me: "As a government contractor, advertising expenses are an unallowable expense, why did you spend all that money on business cards? I really don't think an ex military general cares too much about how cool your business cards are."

    Them: "Did you see the new logo and slogan?"

    Me: Facepalm.

    The old days you dropped to a knee and took a stick to draw lines in the dirt. Then it evolved to colored yard, rocks, and matchbooks to double for your terrain map-targets.

    Today officers are routinely chewed out because their Power-Point presentations aren't jazzy enough. Not because of the content mind you, but because it lacked animation, music, or video.
