Yes, a grain of salt and perhaps a spoonful of sugar. It can be bitter medicine to sell a third or more of every week to someone who may not be able to show you any loyalty and may not even if they could. Then again, it's no picnic running your own business, either. Oh, well, if it was all fun and games they wouldn't call it "work", right?
Still, when things go a little bit wrong and there's less an ax and more a hedge trimmer, it helps to be one of the ones not sticking out from the hedge. Proper documentation can help those in charge of the dirty deed end up with a nicely shaped bush rather than cutting the strong branches and leaving the browning twigs.
