How long can this go on?
Breathes there a man with soul so dead who never to himself has said: "Jeebus, I could run this place better than these clowns"? Somehow I doubt it. In my own office, this utterance is heard roughly sixteen times a week, and not just from me.
Besides, what qualifications could possibly be required? Secra can certainly fill the bill at her workplace:
I'm cute. I smell good. I'm reasonably calm in a crisis ... unless it's messing up my hair. I know almost all of the words to "Working In A Coal Mine."
She also proposes policy changes, the most truly innovative of which is "Walking away from a paper jam will be considered a dismissable offense."
Oh, well, we'll never lure her away from the Bay Area.
