This is a question The Dirty Secrets of Your Trade

So, Television is a hot bed of lies, deceit and made up competitions. We can't say that we are that surprised... every job is full of this stuff. It's not like the newspapers currently kicking TV whilst it is down are all that innocent.

We'd like you to even things out a bit. Spill the beans on your own trade. Tell us the dirty secrets that the public need to know.

I write software for the military
It's an advanced system which is used to plan and execute orders. Lots of secret information.

But our users disregard our system and use Excel instead because it enables them to do the planning on their laptop at home. Occasionally they type the information into our system afterwards.

The amazing thing is that they don't follow orders. There is no way to order them to use the system. This seems to be the dirty secret of the military: *people don't follow orders*.

I take this as a hint to stay clear of all wars.

Still not convinced? Don't get me started about the general quality of military software ..
