Cost-Benefit Analysis

There is a department in our company to which the corporate choir sort of reports.  As president, I am obligated to color inside the lines, although I do have some leeway to offer suggestions about where the lines should be.  Let's call this department Mega Corporation One Choir Department (MCOCD).  The room in which we rehears is the Multi Purpose Room.  It is about 100 feet by 40 feet, and the back of the room is used for storage of years-old cr@p.  However, there is a locked smaller room off to the side in which we can store music and equipment, including the piano.

Scene 1 (in person)
Me:  Good morning!  Great news - we recruited enough people that our rehearsal room needs more chairs.  How do I make that happen?

MCOCD:  Well, you should be able to call the Corporate Services number and request some more.  Let me check with the boss.  I'll let you know by tomorrow.

Scene 2 (via Instant Online Chat)


MCOCD: hey GDad...how many more chairs were you talking about...we are discussing now

GDad Lastname: Maybe 10?
I think we have enough for ~38 to 30 seats.
oops.
28 to 30
We have 39 books assigned, including Director's and Accompanist's.

MCOCD: we can't have the extra chairs in the multi purpose room all the time so just go ahead and email Serivices...and let them know when you need them. and when they should come get them...i just wanted to double check with the Boss!!
good luck with the newbies!
