corporate wisdom.

Nothing much to report as of late. I've been on the jobhunt for the past two weeks being that the company that just hired me and paid $1,500 to train me decided that instead of saying, "Oops, we forgot you told us that you couldn't work nights because of school. Let's see if we can work something out." Had decided, "Well, we can't give you a special exepmtion, because we would have to give one to EVERYBODY, and we can't let people think we're willing to work with them. They're employees, for God's sake"

And so it goes, and so it goes. Corporate thinking leading us forward into the 21st Century.
God bless their little unimaginative hearts.

So, as a little treat for you all, and because my new Systems Design class is giving me just a glimpse of an idea of how stupid "corporate culture" can be (I'm still trying to deal with the laughable fact that it's called a "culture"), I'd like to give you a couple of all-too-fitting definitions my girlfriend dug up on the web a while back:

Corporation

A miniature totalitarian state governed by an unelected heirarchy of officials who take a dim view of individualism, free speech, equality and eggheads. The backbone of western democracies.

Managment

A class of semi-skilled corporate hirelings whose rise within the organization directly correlates to the amount of work they delegate to their more talented underlings.

OK, so I'm a little annoyed with the greed-driven, idea-lacking, buzzword-using evil empires of today. Maybe if I knew they were doing things like giving money to the Arts and funding charities with the motivation of actually DOING GOOD instead of the tax write-offs and "public image" they're really after I may have a less harsh opinion.

If you're insulted by this, sue me. The most you're gonna get is a '84 Rabbit (which has the special "praying the front end won't fall apart and toss you off the highway on the way home from school" feature), a custom-built 'puter that you'll probably destroy unless you give it to your IS department, and a fairly decent TV/VCR combo.

I, of course, would get some great PR in return.
