I was given this task that hardly anyone wants to do and is so boring. It is also on a boundary of my expertise. The DB gives some general recommendations when I tell him politely that I am stuck with it. Hiring a contractor is not an option.
I am so frustrated about it that I would happily pay cash to another guy who is good at it, but assigned to more urgent stuff at the moment. At the same time I feel that it may be looked at as something inappropriate. Although I do not see which policy it may violate (gift policy? But it is not a gift. What do you think?
