Reminds me of the old days:

We need this right away! ... We need a bid from you by yesterday! ... It's been five minutes since you got the proposal, where's your bid??!!?

...weeks pass...

We need it right away! What do you mean nobody said your bid won the job. Oh, well, that's just a formality... We gotta have it right away!

...days later...

When can you have it done? Today? Great! What do you mean you can't ship it till you have the paperwork saying you won the bid?? Well, we'll get that right out to you!

..hours later...

What do you mean it's not the right paperwork? I'll bring a special exemption right over in person...

... a month later...

We need this new thing right away!! What do you mean you haven't been paid yet for the last rush job??
