If you're gonna be a contractor, you have to abide by the golden rule: the clients gots the gold, the clients makes the rules.

Tony Markatos responds:

As a former air traffic controller (USAF), I truly prefer to work to a predetermined set of rules - it makes life a lot easier. Can you imagine a ruleless ATC system?

However, when doing TW contracting, I have often found that the client does not have an adequate set of rules; he most often solicits me for a significant number of rules (methods, procedures, etc.). I don't have any firm rules, just suggested guidelines. So, I - per the customer - go that route. Problem: My suggested guideline, at some point, violates some UNSTATED client rule.
