Mr Tenpercent

A management consultant at a European food company told me she was shocked. The external PR firm which is being used by the company always bills it for travel expenses plus 10%.
"Why do you always pay them 10% extra for travel?" she asked the CEO.
"Because otherwise they'd send us a separate bill for the time they spend filling in the expense form," was the explanation!
