"If I ignore the process, I can get it done via the back door."

Rhetorical Question: If your order has already reached provisioning, why are you asking for an approval number?

Sad Answer: Because you didn't bother getting approval from us before signing up the customer.

Background: The team I'm in reviews and approves network designs for custom solutions. I just started an email with the line:

"There is no approval number, as there has not yet been any approval."

And trayce, if you're wondering, yes, this is Wholesale. A law unto themselves.
