Missing the ap-point-ment

02/26/2018

As accountants we are taught, during years of professional training, to be right miserable bastards. Pessimists. Doom and gloom merchants always looking to spoil someone’s fun. We give it a fancier title though and call it being prudent.

If we think something looks odd then we examine the evidence and challenge it if necessary. That’s our job.
