Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

It doesn't matter what the decision is, we just need to know!!!

It happens all the time. Gully is such a fud. He couldn't make a decision if his life depended on it! If he had a brain he'd take it out and kick it! (but he doesn't)

The current problem is that we need to decide whether to use supplier A or B for this particular little electronic chip. Each supplier has it's advantages; some people like one and some the other. But it doesn't really matter. What matters is that we get parts ordered in time for production. Gully won't get blamed if we are late, we will, and he is sitting on a decision.

There are several theories about why. It may be that he hopes one of the suppliers will take him golfing. It may be that he likes one better but is afraid some big bird out in production likes a different one. It may be that his girlfriend is trying to get set up as a supplier's rep for one of them. (Dumb theory; Gully never had a girlfriend that smart!) Probably it's just that he cant make decisions and avoids them like the plague!

It wouldn't be so bad if this were the only time it has occured. No, it's about everything. First he can't decide whether to have a weekly staff infection; then he can't decide on any agenda; then he can't decide if he wants to hold it or cancel it, since he doesn't have anything useful to say. But it is good to say to your bird that you communicate regularly so we keep trying to have it.
