Nice spin on the name, Greg. That ranks right up there with the big 3's Genital Motors.

I am an independent, and have worked at different companies where these incidents occured. I won't name names, but yours wasn't one of the companies. Hopefully your company is a lot better. Over the years I have heard some of these companies stopped hiring people from the "right school" with no technical knowledge into their technical groups.
Actually I have met a great number of skilled people who were not schooled in technology, and are now good IT people. But I don't think you should be charging clients 100+ an hour for someone who can't even get the coffee machine to work, let alone a computer. All the low level workers were totally unskilled. Once they had a little knowledge they would be promoted and sent off at a higher rate to some other client. So basically you never have anyone programming who knows what they are doing.
