The story of the lagging worker…

10 comments

.

His boss wanted to fire him because he was accused, by his coworkers, of moving at a snail’s pace.  

“I realize that I’m a bit sluggish,”  he exclaimed, while red with embarrassment.”  He then said, “There are a lot of sluggards in my family, I know; we were brought up wrong, and some of us are trying our best to get out of the vicious spiral that we are in; please give me another chance.”

“Well, OK,” said his boss, with a straight face.

And so he happily continued in his job of cleaning the inside glass of aquariums… not once thinking that his job sucks.  

[If you are still working for an employer, remember this little story, and realize that (in deep reflection) the observer may not be all that separate from the observed.]
