You may remember the post from a couple of weeks ago about the leftie radio talkshow host who couldn’t figure out what good sending an aircraft carrier would do to help the tsunami victims.
Varifrank had to get ‘unprofessional’ in dispensing some very healthy knowledge to a group of euros that he has to work with on this very topic.
Over the past 6 weeks, I’ve been deeply enmeshed in one of those “go live at the end of the year” projects that we in the IT industry have learned to love. The kind where managers assume that since no one is working, why that would be the perfect time to go live!
Of course, it means that your doing complex work at the point of maximum distraction with many many holidays and no staff.
Today, during an afternoon conference that wrapped up my project of the last 18 months, one of my Euro collegues tossed this little turd out to no one in particular:
“See, this is why George Bush is so dumb, theres a disaster in the world and he sends an Aircraft Carrier…”
After which he and many of my Euro collegues laughed out loud.
and then they looked at me. I wasn’t laughing, and neither was my Hindi friend sitting next to me, who has lost family in the disaster.
I’m afraid I was “unprofessional”, I let it loose
Indeed he did. Go Read.
