the wide, wide world of bullshit

With applications to the topic at hand, perhaps, comes this longish (but enjoyable) article from The Guardian:

    OMG, that's a long and wordy read... I'll run it up the flagpole and get my ducks in a row 'cos' that's a game-changer....!

    It's interesting that there was so much set up to the meat of the article, which was the final 3 paragraphs. I could have skipped the rest where my eyes glazed over and just read those :lol: But business management and corporate work life isn't my interest area, so there's that. My husband works in state government, and there is so much of it. So much time spent in meetings, talking, talking, talking and really saying and doing nothing. But I suppose it's job security!

    The result of talking for hours is called 'Minutes'. Go figure....
