What are you: Some kind of scrooge trying to increase unemployment before the holidays. <g>

Here's the application I'd like to see someone write ...

  1. Enter the cost of the item being considered.
  2. Enter the hourly rate of the employees meeting to discuss it.
  3. For each meeting enter the hours spent in preparation, and meeting, and follow-up.
  4. When the cost of the meetings exceeds the cost of the item ...
  5. The software issues the purchase order and pink slips for the employee's managers and emails the employees and tells them to get back to doing real work.

I figure if I released the software for $10 per copy a minimum of $10,000,000 would be spent in the first six months considering whether to implement it.
