We Know It’s Broken, but…

December 7th, 2017 · No Comments

For some reason (and we have a lot of these reasons), we just let things go when we know better.

Yes, that thing doesn’t work right, but you know, we just don’t fix it because…

  • I don’t like fixing things
  • It is someone else’s problem, they broke it or they installed it wrong
  • I have more fun things to do
  • I have more interesting things to do
  • If you ask me to fix it, I’ll quit this job and get one where they let me do what I like
  • I don’t work for you, or
  • You’re not the boss of me
  • and besides, people are so accustomed to it not working that they stopped complaining
  • and we could keep growing the list.

And so this management job isn’t as easy as people told me it would be because there are all these people working here, and they don’t do what I say.
