HOW GOVERNMENT FUNCTIONS

Post by 1962xk » Mon Oct 19, 2009 7:43 pm

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.
A politician said "Someone might steal from it at night", so they created a Night Watchman position (GSO4) and hired a person for the job.
Then a bureaucrat said "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?"
So they created a Planning position and hired two people, one to write the instructions (GS12) and one to do time studies (GS11).
Then another bureaucrat said "How will we know that the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?"
So they created a QC position and hired two people, one to the studies(GS9) and one to write the reports(GS11).
Then another bureaucrat said"How are these people going to get paid?"
So they created the following positions: a Timekeeper(GSO9) and a Payroll Officer (GS11) and hired two people.
Then another bureaucrat said "Who will be accountable for all of these people?"
So they created an administrative position and hired three people: an Administration Officer (GM13), an Assistant Administration Offficer (GS13) and a Legal Secretary (GSO8).
Then the Minister said "We have had this command in operation for less than a year and we are already $180,000 over budget. We must cut back overall costs."

The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

Be More like a Dog, If you can't, Eat it, Play with it, Chase it, or Bark at it, Just Piss on it and walk away.
