Aw hell, the best stories are rarely about decisions that turn out well in the immediate aftermath. Few people love to regale their audience with the time they said, "No thanks Phil, I can't go out drinking this evening. I'm going to put in these unlogged hours at the office to finish up this expense report nobody will thank me for even though it is a Friday night and I'll never get this time back."
Except Gary, but nobody likes Gary anyway... He knows what he did!
