Your field offices always think that everyone in DC is out-of-touch, bureaucratic, and totally unaware of how things really work. Obsessively fixated on unimportant details, lazy, and overpaid. Evil parasitic weasels. Your HQ office always thinks that the field offices are reckless, single-minded, and don’t understand the context of the work or the political realities of getting funding. Cowboys.
That’s just how it is. But don’t worry. Field and HQ instantly unite when faced with the dreaded donor.
