Обожаю книги из серии "Плоского мира", прочитал почти все. Смешные, но при этом жизненные. Перечитывая историю почтовой службы, наткнулся на несколько пассажей, которые меня развеселили. Приведу их как есть. Читать в обязательном порядке, а если еще не приобщились к "плоскому миру", то самое время.

We must speculate to accumulate! Spurred by the competiton, we are investing several hundred thousand dollars in a challenging, relevant, and exciting systemic overhaul of our entire organization, focusing on our core competencies while maintaining full and listening cooperation with the communities we are proud to serve. We fully reallize that our energetic attempts to mobilize the flawed infrastructure we inherited have been less that totally satisfactory, and hope and trust that our valued and loyal customers will bear with us in the coming months as we interact synergistically with change managment in our stiving for excellence. That is our misson.

You did what you were told or you didnt get paid, and if things went wrong it wasnt you problem. It was the fault of whatever idiot has accepted this message for sending in the first place. No one cared about you, and everyone at headquartes was an idiot. It wasn’t your fault, no one listened to you. Headquartes had even started an Employee of the Months scheme to show how much they cared. That was how much they didn’t care.
