Another story from the architect place I worked at when I was a student:
When I had my initial interview there, I took my folio of work produced using 3DS MAX. I told them that I was still learning the software, and that it was the only 3D programme I knew at the time.
Interviewer: "Fine, fine ... thats no problem" (practically drooling, as I'm a student and so will only be earning £140 a week in this job, whilst he can sell my stuff to the client for full price)
So I start work there, and quickly realise I'm expected to produce MAX and Lightscape quality renders using a copy of Microstation '95 on a Power mac with 32 mb of RAM (they neglected to point this out in the interview, probably because they were all computer illiterate)
Furthermore, I realised that the previous employee had been producing all of his renders using what I suspected to be an illegal copy of 'Strata' (which he had removed from the system at the time of his departure - only small portions of the programme files remained)
So, I go to the hot-headed company director to try and explain the situation:
Me: "Hey look ... this might be pirated software ... you could get in a lot of trouble for this"
Him: "I'M SICK AND TIRED OF EXCUSES! YOU TOLD ME YOU COULD DO THIS JOB! I BET THAT WASN'T EVEN YOUR WORK IN YOUR FOLIO!!!!"
