Work gripe #3

Further to my earlier gripe about chasing for approval on behalf of someone else...

Now that I have done so and found that approval is denied, I get to be the one to take the heat from the people seeking the change. Admittedly, they will get more heat than me: they promised to the customer that the change would be made.

And because the manager's message denying the request has a multi-sentence reply explaining why we (as a company) don't want to make the change, instead of a simple "no - absolutely not", I expect I'll now be dealing with questions like "okay... but how do we get this changed?"
