Yeah, can we all just get over the idea that there was a golden age when everyone was moral and responsible? There wasn't. There have been lazy shitheads at every level of human society in every age.
And yet I still deal with people everyday where I go how the **** do you even have a job?
Just saw this up on the old facebook
So, imagine that the company you work for held a poll, and asked everyone if they thought it would be a good idea to put a soda machine in the break room. The poll came back, and the majority of your colleagues said “Yes”, indicating that they would like a soda machine. Some said no, but the majority said yes.
So, a week later, there’s a soda machine. Now imagine that Bill in accounting voted against the soda machine. He has a strong hatred for caffeinated soft drinks, thinks they are bad for you, whatever. He campaigns throughout the office to get the machine removed. Well, management decides “OK, we’ll ask again” and again, the majority of people say “Yes, lets keep the soda machine.”
Bill continues to campaign, and management continues to ask the employees, and every time, the answer is in favor of the soda machine. This happens, lets say… 35 times. Eventually, Bill says “OK, I’M NOT PROCESSING PAYROLL ANYMORE UNTIL THE SODA MACHINE IS REMOVED”, so nobody will get paid unless management removes the machine. What should we do???
Answer: Fire Bill and get someone who will do the fucking job.
Bonus: Bill tells everyone that he was willing to “Negotiate”, to come to a solution where everyone got their payroll checks, but only so long as that negotiation capitulated to his demand to remove the soda machine.
Bill is a fucking jackass.

In other news, I was reading today that Alan Greenspan was not qualified to Head the Federal Reserve. That was an eye-opener. It seems he got the job as he had been a Speech Writer for Nixon. So, that's all right then.
It also seems that your next Head apparently warned against the excesses that led to the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac...and didn't get anywhere.
Hmm, it looks like the financial meltdown may have been avoidable.
Feel free to shoot this down.
