The very promising project I was in just failed today. It kicked off two months ago, and it hurts a little because I poured some heartblood into it and it grew a little to my heart.
It failed because it was doomed to fail from the start. Head honcho for our project on the client side had orders to make project with us, when in fact he'd have prefered making project with a competitor. Turns out in the two months the hole sideshow ran political-powers shifted, and suddenly the head honcho was able to screw us. So he did.
But then, I will probably never get the hang of politics...
Gee it sucks.
