“They’ve been serenity. But every time they open their oral fissure, information technology’s a different excuse. They talk this quiet stuff, simply they keep making up excuses. Now information technology’s the coach. Then it was the referee, because I was holding. Every excuse in the book. Only why did you lot burn your whole team? If you truly felt like I was holding too much, why did you fire your whole team?
