In the Beginning were assumptions.
And the Assumptions were without form.
The Assumptions quickly became standard operating procedures.
The standard operating procedures were completely without substance.
And darkness fell upon the faces of the Workers.
The Workers spoke amongst themselves saying, “These procedures are a crock! They so stinketh!”
And the Workers went unto their Supervisors saying, “Our standard operating procedures are a pail of dung. None may abide this current plan of action nor the odor thereof.”
Then, the Supervisors went unto their Managers saying unto them, “This current plan is a container of excrement and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it.”
Therefore, the Managers went unto their Directors saying, “The current plan is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength.”
After which, the Directors came to a consensus among themselves, saying one to another, “The plan contains that which aids growth, and we understand its strength.”
By and by the Directors went unto the Vice Presidents saying unto them, “The plan is infused with powerfulity and intensifications, and capabilitatarianism.”
And the Vice Presidents went unto the President saying unto him, “This new Plan promotes growthiness. This is the visionariment we need for the Company and for our deserving Workers,”
The President skimmed the summary and glanced at the attached bar graph. The Plan, he decided, was good, Therefore, the Plan became Policy.
And this is how $#!+ happens.
