Default Reporting in without any enthusiasm

I have just finished a 4500 word report, on a very
dull subject, for a bunch of dullards who wil disregard it, and for what? Oh! we'll get a report for you on that!
A load of shit for a bunch of shits. Welcome to modern management.

I spent three days last week doing some pre-lim research and reporting on something.....only to be told today that it was a massive waste of time, project isn't signed off and that when they said it was live, they were telling porkies.
