Thrown Out Of A Meeting Again

Rah-rah speaker: "Remember, quality is always #1!  --Yes, question?"

RX: "So that means our customers are 'number two?'"

...Long silence followed.  Um, further, I will not say.

So how long did it take you to write "I will keep my mouth shut during Company Meetings" 100 times on the White Board?

We were told that our main mission was to keep share prices high.

That did wonders for morale.

I worked for Big Blue during their transition from Excellence As A Way Of Life to Good Enough To Get By.

I was never good at keeping my mouth shut in meetings. Made for some interesting times.

I am reminded of the US .gov facility that had the sign out front proudly proclaiming their commitment to quality via "ZERO DEFCETS".

Ditto og. When you ask questions that make other department heads... uncomfortable... they stop asking you to show up.

Suits me.
