People say time is money - well I don't buy that for a second

Having gotten up two hours before sunrise I have already edited an older Linux post, Growled at an HR drone in an email, and am now debating if we have enough sauce for Pizza tomorrow.

Pizza never sleeps.  We love our Pizza.

So since you should always remember that HR exists to protect the Company's rights and not your own, here is a bit of workplace cynicism for your Saturday Morning. 


100 Bricks

Agency: " Sir, we found 3 candidates as per your requirements. How do you want their placements, sir?"

MD: "Put about 100 bricks in a closed room. Then send the candidates into the room and close the door, leave them alone and come back after a few hours and analyse the situation:

    If they are counting the bricks, put them in Accounts department.

    If they are recounting the bricks, put them in Auditing.

    If they messed up the whole room with the bricks, put them in Engineering.

    If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in Planning.

    If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in Operations.

    If they are sleeping, put them in Security.

    If they broke the bricks into pieces, put them in Information Technology.

    If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.

    If they say they have tried different combinations yet not a single brick has been moved, put them in Sales.

    If they have already left for the day, Put them in Marketing.

    If they are staring out of the window, put them in Strategic Planning. And...

    If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been touched, Congratulate them and put them in Top Management.
