Of course he had a choice. He chose to agree to a new deadline.
Or else.... what? If he didn't agree to this "new deadline" then what, the work appears at his doorstep the next day? He has no control over when Broderick decided to ship this thing. What else can he do BUT wait?
Even you agreed, "Yeah, he didn't "shut up" about it prior to the 5th as he said he would so I'll give you that much."
I agreed that he didn't keep his word that he would "shut up" about the matter. That has nothing to do with the validity of his complaint. There shouldn't have to be a NEW deadline. The OLD one should have been honored.
Dude. Seriously. There are a lot of people out there in the world, working very long hours at very challenging jobs that would probably get a kick out of an "account manager" saying things like...
"I don't know about you Joe, but I work hard to earn my money."
"I guess you don't value your hard earned money the way I value mine."
Well doood, since your suddenly an authority on my job, tell me, how many hours do I work? How challenging is
my job exactly? What type of account management do I do?
How is Mr. Broderik not professional by discussing this?
Oh, so with Broderick it's "discussing this
" and with Michael it's "bitched about it here
." Bartender, give me a standard and make it a double!
I don't know about you Fox, but I'm sure the creators like Mr. Broderik worked hard to earn their money. Maybe not as hard as an account manager but still very hard.
Again, tell me the specifics of what I do since apparently you're now an expert on my life and my job.
A corporation REPEATEDLY and SYSTEMATICALLY escaping contractual obligations is not the same as someone getting a sketch a little later than he'd originally agreed to.
Dip into that vast fountain of knowledge of yours then and tell me, what were the details of Broderick's deal with DC that were repeatedly and systematically broken? Exactly what
was he promised? Was this work for Michael merely a sketch or was it more than that? How much did Michael pay for this and what was the original timeframe promised? Surely you know all this since your speaking so confidently about it. So please enlighten the rest of us.
