The new admin's skill set: lots of talk, few skills, a desire to make himself look good at any cost, and a habit of dismissing and demeaning anyone who questions him.
When a request comes in to build a server for Very Important People, the boss wants to show off. He decides to build the system himself ... in the middle of the shared office space, so everyone can view his expertise. His plans are foiled when he can't figure out an error message -- and insults the tech who tries to help.
The boss pays the vendor for the same solution, but it takes several more similar incidents to get him fired -- some justice.
