a bean counter

Rate this phrase:(1.00 / 1 vote)
One whom keeps track of minute details. One whom counts trivialities and overlooks the major items of the moment.

My concern is how much it's going to cost, how long it is going to require. The big things shall take care of themselves, the devil's in the details.
