Flooding the toilet

“I could easily build it myself”.

This is the voice of someone who hasn’t tried building it.

If they think it’s easy but it’s actually hard, they won’t want to pay what it’s worth.

If you’re trying to get buy-in for a contract database, your stakeholders need to understand how hard it actually is.

Like that “I don’t need a plumber” friend we all have, sometimes the only option is letting them accidentally flood the toilet.
