Focusing on the wrong things.


It never ceases to amaze me how much time is wasted on pointless, silly issues in offices. Imagine if the same time used to develop this sign was put into figuring out how to increase profits enough to allow for additional creamer purchases.


Along these lines, Citigroup is cutting color copies and Blackberries. I can certainly understand the color copies – they are an expensive waste that people tend to think very little about their actual need before using them. But giving an employee a Blackberry usually means that they willingly end up working 24/7. Why would the company want to stop that as a way to save money? Isn’t it just costing them money instead?
