Equipment for morons

The one part of my job that I dislike is ordering high-powered hardware for people with low-powered brains. Dropping several thousand dollars on notebooks for dumbasses is not my idea of "keeping expenses in check". It's crap like this that just chaps my ass. Why not just put "will allow me to play the latest kickass games when I travel" as the justification? We all know that's what you're going to do with it. Well, all of us except the higher-ups who approve stuff like this. I guess the trick is to drop a couple of buzz words such as "security audit" and "enterprise safety issues" to get what you want.

People just piss me off.
