Calming the feathers
March 1 - Well the close of the last financial year did not go quite as planned.
The auditors sent someone to do a stock count. And they caused merry hell saying we had everything wrong and then saying as they didn't agree with our stock on some sample vehicles we'd have to bring all in.
This rapidly escalated to a stand off and I had to call the audit partner and make clear we were doing exactly as we have done for years which they have always signed off and I was profoundly unhappy at having my business disrupted by someone who had no clue what they were doing.
In fairness a manager arrived very quickly. A review was done. The auditor who had caused problems was sent to the office. But far too many of our people had to stay late for no good reason. I was not amused, at all. And the partner has been told so. Not least because they agreed all was OK in the end, of course. I want things to be right. We invest in things being right and a kid of 23 is not going to upset the apple-cart.
I'll calm down again, sometime soon, maybe.
