Does this mean I've only worked for stupid companies? One of last times
I was a FTE (so long ago) or at another, contracting for a "huge"
project with no end in sight (slightly more recently) the companies
drank lye by mistake. I've even been the one who pointed out the label
on the bottle, or so I believe.

(Edward Gorey's "Gashlycrumb Tinies"- J is for James, who drank lye by
mistake.)

Are we Rodney Dangerfield, or are we Dilbert?
