The problem is he is overcommitted to other projects. This project is only allocated for 25% of his time yet it requires at least 50% of it. The reality is that I don't give a shit because he is very unsympathetic to my work needs and expectations. And I cannot complete my tasks if you do not tell me what they are. Expect this battle to continue.
In other news we had a long meeting with our financial adviser. He's a long winded fellow who refuses to leverage technology to make my life easier. We spent 90 minutes listening to a speil and providing print out of paystubs and mortgage statements. I thought about sending them to him electronically but I knew that he would 1) print them out anyway and 2) not look at them before the meeting so it would have been a waste of effort.
So essentially we are taking valuable money that could go into our Roth or towards a trip to Hawaii for our friends wedding and using it to pay him to look over our income, expenses and debts and determine how much we need to put away in order to retire at X age and earn an income of Y wages after retirement.
