Over the last few weeks I've been auditing an account at work. Huge amounts of money and I'm off from the 'official" number by less than .2% but still have to figure it out. In the course of my audit I have found that the university is not charging me enough for a certain type of position. In fact, they aren't really charging me at all.
Now I could be greedy and say too bad for the university, but instead I'm trying to do the right thing. I want to be charged more money because otherwise all of my accounting is wrong. I want to pay my fairshare of costs.
So what happens? I get the run around. And I'm not talking a little run around. I'm talking dog chashing its tail in circles run around. I may have found a solution for part of the problem. But I shouldn't have to do this much work to do the right thing.
I can see why people give up.
