Thank you, thank you. The Dilbert calendars will be appearing momentarily. Don't forget to tip your server.

Ok... so it wasn't quite that blatant. The actual phrasing from my director was, "I'm not sure that 'best effort' support is suitable here." But it qualifies.

I'm getting wiser (and mellower) in my old age, though. My reply was to outline the consequences for the other project I'm working on and to confirm that he understands and accepts this.
