I have not seen this video on this site yet, so I am wondering if anybody else has seen it. I think everybody, especially newbies, must see this video. Enjoy!

Actually... Nov 6, 2009

This must be the fourth time just in one month this was posted in some ProZ forum. And it's been posted many times before.
But it is uncannily realistic for our business...

TOPIC STARTER
Sorry for quadruple posting, then Nov 6, 2009

I have not seen this video mentioned anywhere on ProZ, so I thought I would share. It seems that many have seen this here, so maybe my post is redundant, then.

Still, if I have only come across it now, it may be that there are many of us who haven't seen it. Maybe it is a good idea then to post it again.

It is realistic for our business, but the point of this video is precisely to demonstrate how unrealistic this is in any other trade. It is a warning to many of us who think that filet and ground beef can all be sold at the same price, and to those who think that rates should be established based on what the client's budget is.

Some may view this video as funny and entertaining (sorry if it was posted in the lighter side forum--I originally posted it in the money matters forum), but I find this rather sad, and awfully alarming.
