    I decline to answer the rest, but my answer to number 11 is that they spend a lot of time collecting useless information from people who don’t give a frick about what IT people do. Then they use it to pass a class in IT so that they can they will ultimately not be hired by companies that actually need to employ people who might possibly contribute to the profits of the enterprise. I can’t help but think of the combination of people who major in Social Hospitality (SH) and those who have majored in Information Technology. What a combination!
