The Plan

An oldie, but still insightful in its truth....


In the beginning there was the plan.

And then came the assumptions.

And the assumptions were without form.

And the plan was without substance.

And darkness was upon the face of the Workers.

And the Workers spoke amongst themselves, saying, "This is a crock of shit, and it stinketh."

And the Workers went unto their Resident Engineers and said, a bit more diplomatically, "It is a pail of dung, and we can't live with the smell."

And the Resident Engineers went unto their Assistant Division Engineers, saying, "It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide it."

And the Assistant Division Engineers went unto their Division Engineers, saying, "It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength."

And the Division Engineers spoke amongst themselves, saying, "It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong."

And the Division Engineers went unto the Construction Engineer, saying, "It promotes growth, and it is very powerful."

And the Construction Engineer went to the Director, saying, "This new plan will actively promote the growth and vigor of the company with very powerful effects."

And the Director looked upon the plan and saw that it was good, And the plan became policy.

And that my friends, is how "Shit Happens".
