Without music, life would be a mistake
Being new to posting on a blog I ask that this be posted anonymously. I've been a practicing chemist for 30 years, and have never found music at work to be a distraction, quite the opposite, it helped me stay focused and kept from from thinking about the sometimes depressing job conditions. But I like to call your attention to this little gem that came out this week from Mike Mallory (see below). I call attention to the first two "improvements" in the list. These are subjects that Scott Adams has addressed in a number of Dilbert cartoons. It's sad to see that our management has sunk that low, or could be that clueless. Though I have to admit I've run across co-workers who thought listening to music at work was somehow unprofessional, but I tend to side with Nietzsche on this, who said "Without music, life would be a mistake." But I guess in the grand scene of things this is just a drop in the bucket.
It looks like adults aren't welcome at LANL.
This place is fast becoming unrecognizable, at least to me. Am I alone in this? Say it ain't so!
However, the fact that the memo was even conceived, much less circulated to staff indicates a sickness within LANL management that is probably not curable.
I am glad that I no longer work at LANL, but I feel sympathy for those who remain and are forced to tolerate the type of inept, malicious management illustrated by the author of this memo.
That's right. We will be told when to pee.....and it will be in a cup for drug testing
"For those of us who work at TA_55, we now affectionately refer to it as 'Stalag 55.'"
Maybe the TA-55 "cowboys" are now objecting to being corralled, at last? Have we finally done with Bruce Matthews'legacy? You don't get to make up the rules anymore!Welcome to our (the rest of LANL) world!
